A work demonstration about the collaboration between the actor, the director and the text.

The Dead Brother is an explanation of how performances are created at Odin Teatret. It describes the stages in the work, starting out from a poetic text which becomes a "poem in space": the performance.

It presents the different phases of the process in which text, actor and director interact. It shows how the actor creates his/her own stage presence until the final synthesis in which the text, through the form and precision of the actions, acquires a rhythm and density of meaning.

On stage: Julia Varley

Duration: 60 min.
