“The director is the person who, like an army general, has incredible authority.”
In this personal account, Eugenio Barba, Director of Odin Teatret and of the International School of Theatre Anthropology, shares his thoughts on the techniques and training that develop the art of direction.
Barba recounts his exile from Poland and his experiences learning from Jerzy Grotowski – including how the latter worked with and transmuted texts – and how a director might work with the many layers of performance: sound, voice, space, concepts and narratives.
