The TV recording of the performance “Niech sczezna artysci” (Let the artists die) made by S. Zajaczkowski at The Juliusz Slowacki Theatre in Krakow, January 1986.
The world premiere of this performance took place on 2 June 1985 in Alte Giesserei Kabelmetall in Nurnberg. Nearly half a year later the polish viewers could see Let the Artists Die in Warsaw and Cracow. The play is initially set in the cemetary storeroom, which later turns into Kantor’s room of imagination and then into a replica of St. Mary’s Altar by Veit Stoss. In the author’s own words: ‘There is no plot in this performance, there is no play which gives life to this performance, the performance creates itself…’
