SPACE - PRESENCE - PERCEPTION
No theater group has explored deeper the mechanisms of the work of the actor and stage presence as Odin Teatret. Since 1964, Eugenio Barba, considered the father of Theater Anthropology studies and one of the last great masters of contemporary theater, led this company in a dazzling international trajectory. Odin teatret is now legendary.
Odin's actors, almost all of them, work together from more than 50 years. In a collective and in an individual way, they all carried an intense research into the art of the actor, giving uncountable workshops throughout the world, becoming real Masters too.
Roberta Carreri joined Odin Teatret in 1974 and still works in the group to this day. The development of her personal technique was marked by the influence of theatre forms from India, Bali, China, and in particular by working with Japanese masters such as Katzuko Azuma (Nihon Buyo), Natsu Nakajima and Kazuo Ohno ( Butoh). Her research is based on the "physical and vocal presence of the actor", which she developed in a pedagogical format as a workshop entitled "The Dance of Intentions."
