17 minutes of Mr Peanut's life

Mr Peanut, Odin Teatret's archetypal character with a skull head, is presented in three incarnations: the wayfarer in black, the housewife in red and the bride in white. Time passes with the speed of a string unravelling and the child that played in the morning, is no longer recognisable in the evening.

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 vary from 1,200 Euro (+travel and lodging) for one actor, to 11,000 Euro (+travel, lodging and cargo transport) for the whole ensemble. These prices 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.
