Sticks & Stones - a Process in Search of Hidden Meanings

WORKSHOP for actors and performers, conducted by Donald Kitt.

The work will focus on several aspects:

  • the performers physical training
  • the development of actions inspired by the use of an object
  • vocal exploration: the discovery of an individual rhythm, spacial awareness and dynamism

The performer's work evolves from the creation of personal material with the stick as a partner and culminates in a montage. Throughout the development of this material the performer will weave it with texts, songs and the use of space. The workshop aims at encouraging a personal process opening up hidden meanings.

* For longer lasting seminars training with stilts (supplied by Odin Teatret) can be included.

For: 16 participants and 4 observers

The participants must each bring a text and a song known by heart; a phrase extracted from an expression or a nursery rhyme.

The organiser must supply for each participant a wooden stick (min. 150cm x 2,8cm ø).

Room/ Space
Minimum space for 16 participants: 8 metres by 10 metres and 3.5 metre height

The repertoire includes indoor and outdoor performances, shows for an audience of 50 spectators to 400 spectators, shows for a stage or black box rooms, and for spectators sitting frontally or around the space. 

Odin Teatret tours can go from the simple presence of one actor for one day to a complex simultaneous programme of pedagogical, artistic, social and research activities. 

Prices are calculated in working days (workshops, lectures, film showings, performances) and are adjusted in accordance to the length and span of a project. Prices for multicultural productions with Odin Teatret and Theatrum Mundi performers are established for each proposal.
