The Echo of Silence is a performance which describes the vicissitudes of the voice of an actor and the strategems she invents to "interpret" a text.

The voice of the actor and the text presented to the spectators compose the music of a performance. In theatre, which seems to be free of the codes we find in music, the actor needs to create a labyrinth of rules, references and resistance to follow or refuse so as to achieve a personal expression and recognise his/her own voice.

Actress: Julia Varley

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.
