WIN

A WORKOUT FOR INTERCULTURAL NAVIGATORS

THEATRE AS SOCIAL INTERFERENCE

WIN (Workout for Intercultural Navigators) is an on-going schooling programme with cyclic courses, workshops, practical interventions and experiences under the guidance of Odin Teatret and other 'artists in residence' at Odin Teatret and in Holstebro.

 

WIN (Workout for Intercultural Navigators) is directed to theatre practitioners and cultural animators who recognise in their craft the capacity to interfere in the different cultures of the social texture of a community. Theatre is a technique which establishes relationships to oneself, to the past and present, to space and to the community, to the other. Differently from the traditional practice for which the performance is central, theatrical insight can be applied to intervene and revitalise a particular milieu.

 

Odin Teatret's experience as a laboratory is rooted in the artistic quality of its performances. But our theatre laboratory requires that their members are experts in asking pertinent questions and solving concrete tasks (pure and applied research); in passing on technical knowledge (pedagogy); in being cultural operators who are active in the local community as a means of stimulation and integration, promoting artistic transformances and intercultural/intergenerational dialogue and social exchange - or barter - seeking to enliven the relationship between culturally distant individuals and subgroups. Thus theatre, aiming at exchange and social interference, becomes a means to activate a potential cultural energy, displaying anomalous and exceptional experiences.

 

Theatre becomes the art of putting into relation that which is different, making it visible and allowing a communication based on a living contact of empathy and reciprocity. Going beyond its artistic objectives, theatre becomes a cultural motor which infuses equal dignity to the different forms of expression in a community. Often events are placed on the background of the architecture of the town or village, giving back an aesthetic value also to the buildings, streets, fields, markets, prisons, churches, post-offices… allowing the inhabitants to rediscover their homes with different eyes.

 

Since 1989 Odin Teatret organises 'interference' projects of various kind. One of these is the Festuge (Festive Week) in its hometown Holstebro. Since 2005 workshops are realised in connection with the Festuge to give participants worldwide the experience of intervening in the community with theatrical interactions that transform everyday life by framing it, making it visible and extraordinary, establishing unexpected links and paradoxical situations. A chosen theme is the creative starting point for collaborations throughout the texture of the town with the participation of all local organisations, associations, institutions, schools, churches, barracks, old people homes, sport clubs… During the workshops, participants work together part of the day to receive basic elements of physical and vocal training. Then they create performance material which is then assembled in performative sequences presented during the Festuge at the same as they prepare special events for the town. WIN (Workout for Intercultural Navigators) takes inspiration from the Festuge workshops and from other 'interference' activities carried out in Europe and Latin America, to offer an on-going schooling programme for participants wanting to learn how to deal with theatre in its multifaceted possibilities. The programme of WIN's individual workshops will be accompanied by occasional participation of Odin Teatret actors, meetings with Eugenio Barba and vision of Odin Teatret's and visiting guest's performances and work demonstrations.
