DVD - DRESSED IN WHITE
A strolling player arrives in a small village in Southern Italy. She is masked. She always carries her drum with her. She tries to summon the inhabitants. They wonder at her, give her food, but would rather not be disturbed in their work with the tobacco harvest, in their card games or their wedding ceremonies. The children think she moves in a strange way, almost like an animal. Only to the dead in the graveyard she can tell her story without being rejected.
The public solitude of the actor's journey is presented lyrically and realistically in this fictional film, whose title is taken from an Italian folk song.
The character, which Iben Nagel Rasmussen created for the role as town crier, later became a well-known figure in the street and dance perfor-mances of Odin Teatret.
Director, scriptwriter and editor: Torgeir Wethal
Photographer: Tony D'Urso
Actors: Iben Nagel Rasmussen, Jan Torp, Odd Ström
Produced by Odin Teatret Film. 35 min. B/W. 1976.

DVD - IN TRANSIT HIDDEN DIRECTIONS
Directors explain their processes and principles: women directors who are seeking a new way of working, their own way of working, alternatives for the developing of directors.
This video was recorded during the TRANSIT FESTIVAL, held at Odin Teatret, 1-5 November 1992. The aim of the festival was to investigate new and evolving ways of directing. Each performance shown was followed by a process explanation in which the director and actors reconstructed and explained how they had worked on the performance. Thus the secret aspects of the work, the hidden directions, the process, was uncovered.
IN TRANSIT - HIDDEN DIRECTIONS takes extracts from performances, process explanations and interviews made at the festival.
Production: Vagn Groth and Leo Sykes for Odin Teatret Film and Videograph Production. 45 min. Colour. 1993.

DVD - ON THE TWO BANKS OF THE RIVER
"At present it is forbidden to give performances, or attract crowds, either indoors or in the street."
There is martial law in the country Odin Teatret has come to. The authori-ties 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 parade s 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.

DVD - 1st THEATRE DIRECTORS MEETING
1st Theatre Directors´Meeting
The theatre director, in his/her ideal state, is almost always an invisible being and his/her work imperceptible, for the spectator should enter the word of the performance without analyzing how it was made. The director´s essential organs are invisible; the heart, the brain, the stomach, the soul….So how can one train and develop as a director if it is all so indefinible, so intangible?
The proposal of the 1st Directors´ Meeting was to research and discover tools that would help directors to envolve within their art form. The 1st Directors´ Meeting was organized by Circo Teatro Udi Grudi in Brasilia in 2007.
