Pure and applied research
Since it came into existence in 1964, Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium/Odin Teatret has developed three fields of action: artistic, pedagogic and research. Besides achieving autonomous results, these fields have continuously interacted with each other.
The areas of Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium/Odin Teatret devoted to research are:
ISTA, The International School of Theatre Anthropology;
UET, The University of Eurasian Theatre;
CTLS - Centre for Theatre Laboratory Studies;
OTA, Odin Teatret Archives.
Moreover, a range of projects, initiatives and activities take regularly place: Gender Studies within the Magdalena Project, Transit Festival and The Open Page journal, symposiums and publications on the transmission of embodied techniques and Tacit Knowledge, etc.) in which artistic creation, pedagogic practice and research merge. This fertile and intermediary zone corresponds to what in natural sciences is called applied research.
