Eugenio Barba will talk about the relationship between personal biography, historical circumstances, and artistic expression and identity. This relationship will be exemplified with a 70 minutes film about Eugenio Barba’s work and lifelong commitment with Odin Teatret as a theatre laboratory. The film is made by the Norwegian film maker Elsa Kvamme and shows images from the beginning of Odin Teatret in Oslo, Eugenio Barba’s stay in Poland as assistant to Jerzy Grotowski, and the celebration of Odin Teatret’s 50th anniversary in Holstebro, Denmark.
