    EIGHT DAYS SEEING AGAIN AND AGAIN, ANALYSING AND WORKING ON A THEATRICAL STRUCTURE WITH EUGENIO BARBA AND ODIN TEATRET'S ACTORS

     

    For 20 participants

    Cohabitation aims to create a work milieu which functions also as a "collective mind".  All participants are involved with Eugenio Barba and Odin Teatret actors to reflect practically, theoretically and sensorially on a theatrical structure on the basis of their individual experience. At the same time the participants will take part in the rehearsals of a new performance directed by Eugenio Barba with actor Else Marie Laukvik - one of Odin Teatret's founders - and musician Frans Winther. The title is THE DEAFMAN'S HOUSE and it is based on the Spanish painter Francisco Goya's life and artistic carrier.

    In theatre, we can speak of a "collective mind" when an ensemble of motivated people is engaged in a creative process which doesn't aim at realising an already clearly defined dramaturgical structure. A "collective mind" integrates different specialisations, various degrees of experience and diverse responsibilities in an assembling process similar to that which happens in the individual mind in the course of invention: sudden changes of direction, detours, exploitation of serendipitous effects, leaps from one level of organisation to another (pre-expressive level, organic dramaturgy, narrative dramaturgy, shaping of the space, musical universe, etc.).

     

    Participants who are actors must bring a theatrical structure consisting of a scene made for the occasion on the theme "A journey". The scene should last a maximum of three minutes and include text and a song.

     

    Participants who are directors must present a concrete problem or a solution concerning one of their performances through speech, video or photographs. The speech should last a maximum of five minutes.

    The scenes and speeches will be presented for Eugenio Barba, the Odin actors and the other participants on the morning the day after arrival. Odin Teatret actors and Eugenio Barba will respond to the scenes throughout the following days' programme.

    During the Cohabitation, Odin Teatret will show the following performances: The Chronic Life and Ode to Progress. The participants will be able to see the performances again and again and thus begin to distinguish the different layers, relationships and elements that compose the whole.

    Eugenio Barba and the actors will analyse each performance from the perspective of the actor, director, text, space, music, and the overall montage. The flowing continuity of each element that builds the complex structure of a performance will be examined in relation to simultaneity to see how the different elements interact and blend.

     

     

    Participants should arrive by 3:00 pm on 18 of April 2018 and departure is on the 25 of April after lunch. Working hours will be 8:00 am to 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Each evening a performance will be scheduled at 7:00 pm.
