Beschreibung
"Odin Teatret, 1978. Colour. 56 min. Dir. Torgeir Wethal. There is martial law in the country Odin Teatret has come to. The authorities keep a sharp eye on theatre groups, who create disorder, gather crowds, because when people collect together anything can happen. In 1978 Odin Teatret travelled to Peru. The film, which shows how they managed to play their performances and come into contact with people, in spite of the restrictive conditions, is essentially about the strategy of insubordination by means of theatre. Odin Teatret is seen training in a slum, organising parades in Indian villages, performing in an Ayacucho prison and taking part in several barters. Traditional celebrations had not been forbidden. The authorities knew that fireworks were less harmful than paving stones. Some people invited Odin Teatret who agreed to perform on condition the local people accepted a barter: they should also show something of theirs." (Quelle: homepage) (dS)
