itsi bitsi

A little more than a week ago I was in Holstebro in Denmark. We were 45 people from all over the world who spent nine amazing days visiting the company by Eugenio Barba, in the luxury of having daily talks with himself, training with the actors and watching all their repertoire. Iben Nagel Rasmussen and her piece Itsi Bitsi impressed me most. She is an actress at Odin since fourty years, her energy on stage is really astonishing. Sometimes behind the mask one wonders if she is maybe twenty years old again, or five.
Seven years ago I took a series of workshops at Lume, in Campinas/BR. Even earlier I had read The Paper Canoe. It was great to visit the source of what has inspired me for so long.

More on Odin Week will come.
