La Vita Cronica

16-21 Feb. 

With the Odin Teatret directed by Eugenio Barba. Founded in 1964, Odin Teatret is one of Denmark’s most respected theatre companies. The internationally acclaimed team challenges perceptions and crosses boundaries to make audiences think.

The company’s latest production, La Vita Cronica, is an performance by 10 actors, directed by the troop’s founder Eugenio Barba. It is dedicated to Anna Politkovskaya and Natalia Estemirova, Russian writers and human right activists who were murdered by anonymous thugs in 2006 and 2009 for their opposition to the Chechen conflict.

The performance touches on situations in over 20 countries, as the protagonist escapes war, deportation and displacement. The actors speak in Chechnyan, English, Romanian, Basque and Danish. Like all of the company’s productions, it was created through a long process of rehearsals during which the actors and director propose themes, texts and scenes.

The production aims to provide a complete experience for those watching, and spectators are placed on two sides of the stage space with the action unfolding before them. Different scenes take place at the same time to transmit a multi-sensory experience.
