In act I, statues from tombs become animated, in acts II and III it is figures from tapestries, while in act IV the carvings from the choir come alive. All the acts are set on the Wawel Hill, the central site of Polish historical consciousness, which is effectively visited by all the grand Judeo-Christian myths.

The main theme of Akropolis is, then, resurrection, considered both as salvation from death, inertia and forgetting, but also a task beholden upon each human being. This was the only response to the ecstatic prayer of those heading to their deaths and praying for salvation. Grotowski, Szajna and Gurawski again, as they did in Kordian , for example, located the audience and actors in one space.

Shown for the first time in October , the performance underwent numerous changes in the following months and years.

The creators marked the changes by announcing premieres of different versions which — beyond the changes in cast noted below — feature significant differences that have yet to be fully researched. The second version was first presented on 25 November with Maja Komorowska missing from the cast; her place was taken by Maciej Prus which resulted in the dialogue of love between Helena and Paris becoming an exchange between two male lovers. This version was also filmed between 27 October and 2 November by US television produced by James McTaggart; the television broadcast was introduced by Peter Brook.
