Dedicated to Eik Skaløe

Iben Nagel Rasmussen tells of the years preceding her arrival at Odin Teatret, years of hitchhiking round the world, of music and poetry, of political radicalism and drugs. It is her story and that of Eik Skaløe (the first beat poet to sing in Danish, who committed suicide in India in '68) and of their generation. 

Some fragments of the actress's previous performances are interwoven, not as quotations and examples, but as revealing metaphors: the mute Kattrin from Brecht's Ashes, the wandering shaman from Come! And the Day will be Ours, the Trickster from Talabot.

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.
