Paul has worked with a variety of performers. He directed classical musicians and an actor in his piece “Tobo Reist um die Welt”, performed in Austria and Germany. Paul worked with the musicians until they were very comfortable acting on the stage as well as playing. He has directed community actors and singers in “The Fantastiks”. He has also directed and coached numerous individuals in everything from technical circus numbers to commedia dell’arte.
"The theatre (performance), he (Grotowski) believes, cannot be an end in itself; like dancing or music in certain dervish orders, the theatre (performance) is a vehicle, a means for self-study, self-exploration; a possibility of salvation. The actor (performer) has himself as his field of work. This field is richer than that of the painter, richer than that of the musician, because to explore he needs to call on every aspect of himself. His hand, his eye, his ear, and his heart are what he is studying and what he is studying with."
