Ascent to the Sea
Odin Teatret's street production ANABASIS (1977-84)

In order to be seen amongst the crowd, the actors began to use tall stilts. Death was nine feet tall and wore a white tie and tails. In order to be heard they used drums and trumpets. This colourful army which advanced dancing and attacked in formation, broke the daily rhythm, surprising and imprisoning the public in their midst as they advanced to different sites where scenes of the performance were enacted.

In the mid seventies, using traditional processions and parades as a point of departure, Odin Teatret created a street performance Anabasis which could move through towns and villages. Spaces in the town, which normally went unnoticed, were transformed into a stage.
