The Dead Brother
Work demonstration with Julia Varley
The Dead Brother is an explanation of how performances are created at Odin Teatret. It describes the stages of the work, starting out from a poetic text which then becomes a "poem in space": the performance.
It presents the different phases of the process in which text, actor and director interact. It shows how the actor creates his/her own stage presence and the final synthesis in which the text, through the form and precision of the actions, acquires a rhythm and density of meaning.
