From the 27th to the 31st of January 2021 the third NTL Theatre Festival and Meeting will be held at Odin Teatret, with workshops, work demonstrations, work-in-progress, performances and a symposium. The NTL Festival will present the work of some of the artists and groups that make up the autonomous and connected constellation of NTL long-time residents and co-productions. The third NTL Festival is open to 40 participants who can follow the whole programme and share time and experience with the NTL resident artists.

Since the 1990s Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium/Odin Teatret has hosted and been responsible for various international theatre festivals amongst which the recurrent Odin Week Festival (presenting the different aspects of Odin Teatret’s work), Transit Festival (dedicated to the work of women in theatre), the Holstebro Festuge (involving the local community).

The Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium (NTL) residents and co-productions make up the environment of a younger generation that has grown from the seeds sown in the wind by Odin Teatret. They understand theatre not only as performances in a traditional space, but as research, pedagogy, cultural interactive incentive, networking, site specific events, involving different artistic languages, images, body, music and song as a means to create exchange and be a catalyst for contacts, relationships and collaborations within the social/cultural patchwork of the community.

The programme starts on the 27th of January at midday and ends the 31st of January with an evening feast and cabaret.

The artists on the programme to give workshops, talks and performances, and participate in meetings are: Amaranta Osorio (Colombia-FR)-Teresa García Herranz (Spain), Cross Pollination-Parliament of Practices with Marije Nie (The Netherlands) and Adriana La Selva (Brazil/Belgium); Carolina Pizarro and Luis Alonso (Chile-DK), Cia Pessoal de Teatro (Brazil), Cia Yinspiração (Brazil), Dina Hamdan (Jordan-DK), Ding Yiteng (China), Donald Kitt (Canada-DK), Elena Vanni (IT), Idom Village Laboratory with Iben Bredholt (DK), Kai Bredholt (DK), Erika Sanchez (Mexico-DK), Ikarus Stage Arts (International-DK), Julia Varley (UK-DK), KompaniTo (Norway), Kunstteater (DK), Mérida Urquía (Colombia), Per Kap Bech Jensen (DK), Riotous Company (UK-DK), Roberta Carreri (IT-DK), Rocío del Pino Lobos (Chile-D), Tage Larsen (DK), Teresa Ruggeri (IT), The Bridge of Winds with Iben Nagel Rasmussen (International-DK), Váli Theatre Lab.

The Festival is an occasion to share the NTL activities both within the NTL environment itself and with interested participants and spectators. It offers five days of intense diversity coloured by the common desire of learning from each other. The aim is to discover and discuss strategies to give inspiration and meaning to the multifaceted understanding of what theatre is for us who do it as well as for the spectators. Without forgetting the need to take position in the society we are part of.
