"After more than 50 years with Odin Teatret, I feel it is time for me to look back in time. Creativity is like a continuos act of giving birth and all the figures that I have given life to in the theatre, are my stage children, that I would like to encounter and to revive once more."

Else Marie Laukvik speaks about her life as an actress, and at the same time illustrating it with film fragments from the performances: Ornitofilene, Kaspariana, Ferai, My Father's House, Come! And the Day will be ours, Book of Dances, Anabasis, The Million, The Gospel According to Oxyrhincus and Memoria.

My Stage Children

Contact, tours and prices ...

Odin Teatret's repetoire includes productions with the whole ensemble (11-14 actors), productions with fewer actors, solo performances and performances/work demonstrations. 

The repertoire includes indoor and outdoor performances, shows for an audience of 50 spectators to 400 spectators, shows for a stage or black box rooms, and for spectators sitting frontally or around the space. 

Odin Teatret tours can go from the simple presence of one actor for one day to a complex simultaneous programme of pedagogical, artistic, social and research activities. 

Prices are calculated in working days (workshops, lectures, film showings, performances) and are adjusted in accordance to the length and span of a project. Prices for multicultural productions with Odin Teatret and Theatrum Mundi performers are established for each proposal.
