Jerzy Grotowski (11 August 193314 January 1999) was a Polish theatre director and a leading figure in avant-garde theatre of the 20th century. Most notable for his work in the mode known as 'poor theatre' Grotowski is significant for advancing the work on psycho-physical actions pioneered by Constantin Stanislavsky, for pioneering what is known as para-theatrical (or post-theatrical) work and for popularizing a more ritualistic kind of theatre that would help give rise to the contemporary field of performance studies.

He is featured in My Dinner With Andre.
