Sticks & Stones - a Process in Search of Hidden Meanings

WORKSHOP for actors and performers, conducted by Donald Kitt.

The work will focus on several aspects:

  • the performers physical training
  • the development of actions inspired by the use of an object
  • vocal exploration: the discovery of an individual rhythm, spacial awareness and dynamism

The performer's work evolves from the creation of personal material with the stick as a partner and culminates in a montage. Throughout the development of this material the performer will weave it with texts, songs and the use of space. The workshop aims at encouraging a personal process opening up hidden meanings.


* For longer lasting seminars training with stilts (supplied by Odin Teatret) can be included.

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.
