Peter Brook and his NOT empty space !

No one can say that what peter brook created in the last fifty years is an empty space !. You can agree or disagree with the results of his experimental works, but you have to accept the simple fact that peter brook's works represent one of the most important experimental work done in the theatre in the last fifty years. He is a symbol in the mind of many  experimental theatre artists , and his ability to link the experimental theatre to the popular commercial  theatre, with  experimental productions that became commercially successful, like 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and 'Marat Sade' ,  made him the envy of any artist working in the experimental theatre in the last fifty years.

Peter Brook place in the history of theatre is not, and will not be an empty space . It is full of great achievements that enriched the theatre in the last fifty years.
