Secret Room, The - A Journey Into the Universe of Odin Teatret
A journey into the Universe of Odin Teatret, founded in 1964 by Eugenio Barba in Denmark, where this family-like group continues to exist.
On the edge of documentary and fiction, we are taken on a journey into the universe of Odin Teatret, a unique theatre company founded in 1964 by Italian director Eugenio Barba, and based in an old farm in Holstebro, Denmark. How has this family-¬like group survived for over 50 years, despite its members aging and dying? How do we deal with the ephemeral passing of life, and how do we deal with inevitable death? ‘All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players.' (Shakespeare)
