The Gardzienice Centre for Theatre Practices [Ośrodek Praktyk Teatralnych w Gardzienicach] is one of the most famous groups of experimental theatre in the world. It was a pioneer of a new trend in the world theatre. The work of the Gardzienice exerted a great influence on many theatre practitioners all over the world and was widely described in many publications. The group became well recognisable thanks to its rigorous researches on indigenous and ancient musical traditions, impressive body and voice techniques in theatrical works, engagement in the creation of the theatre in a natural environment and emphasis put on the rules of mutuality and musicality. In the recent years the theatre has focussed its attention on Ancient Greece as the source of European culture. Forgotten theatrical techniques of the Ancient Greek theatre referring to the existing iconographic and literary sources as well as to the monuments of Ancient Greek music and to the body techniques are explored. That leads with its assumption to the revival of the tragedy from the spirit of music.
