About the book

The Odin Teatret was founded in 1964 in Norway and for 34 years has been based in Holstebro, Denmark, away from the capital and the centre for theatre. It also tours in other countries. What makes this theatre special in comparison to others, is that 'it comprehends theatre as a specific social and spatial reality, often expressed through the metaphor of a monastery, ghetto or exile'.

The theatre laboratory has many other activities than the mere creation of theatre performances; it also conducts seminars, conferences and meetings with theatre people from around the world. It has published a series of books and magazines about theatre technique and theory and produced films and videos.

This is a remarkable book for actors, dancers, writers, directors, choreographers and others involved in creative theatre production. It is also a valuable resource for anyone who is captivated by the art and craft of the theatre.
