The Whispering Winds in Theatre and Dance


The performative civilisation of European origin suffers from the division between theatre and dance, almost as though these were different universes of expression. They are, in fact, a single world which develops into distinct genres and yet is rooted in the experience of how to let the performer's body-mind become scenically present.

Instead of "theatre" and "dance", we can talk of "deep dance" and "evident dance". "Deep dance" is typical of the scenic forms which do not appear to be danced; "evident dance" sometimes separates itself from every mimetic or narrative criterion in order to present itself as a pure expression of physical dynamism.

All performance, however, is dance at its physical and mental roots. A dance of energy and thought.

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.
