The year 1956 witnessed the revival of the Cricot theatre directed by Tadeusz Kantor. Its spectacles (and to a lesser degree paintings) which touched upon universal existential problems through the intermediary of Polish-Jewish-Galician motifs, combining the experimental nature of a theatrical vision, indivisible from its plastic art counterpart, with an extremely expressive message, were to become one of the few phenomena in Polish art of the last quarter of the century to win truly worldwide resonance..
