In this project theatre is used as an act of creating meetings,
reflections and relations between individuals. Theatre is more than
cultural entertainment and artistic experience: it's a tool for
individuals, communities and townships to interact, explore new
points of perceptions and establish new relationships.
With Re-Think Theatre we use theatre to rethink living
contact. The essence of theatre depends on living contact and
the essence of living contact is based on human meetings, exchange
and in discovering relations.
Re-Think Theatre operates with three main projects in an
interactive and transformative frameset of "living relations":
Festive Week: A great nine days event in the city of
Holstebro that involves and rests on the shoulders of the citizens
of the town. Centered around theatre, more than 100
institutions, associations and organizations become a part of a
grand co-creation in a celebration of social meetings of local
citizens and professional international theatre artists.
Transit Festival for women in theatre: An international festival
and meeting for women in theatre organized in Odin Teatret. Various
women and performances from all over the world come together in
order to present their performances, share their vision and
experience in relation to the specific theme of the festival.
Residencies: Odin Teatret's unique feature is to embrace the growth
of a permanent milieu of collaborators from various countries. We
hosts artists, scholars, theatres and dance groups and offer them
to create, share and perform side by side to the theatre's artists
and intercultural navigators.
