A white deck chair, a large fan, a bonsai, combs of mother-of-pearl, a decapitated head carved out of wood, long hat pins to pierce its eyes and tongue and for adorning the hair, a red dressing gown, a white silk nightdress. Through the justification of the biblical story of Judith, the performance explores the theme of violence and vulnerability, plunging into an ocean of luminous and murderous eroticism.

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.
