This section deals with books written by Eugenio Barba and Odin Teatret’s actors.
From its very start Odin Teatret set up a Publishing House, Odin Teatrets Forlag, which brought out “Teatrets Teori og Teknikk” both as a journal and book form. Its most internationally known original publication was Jerzy Grotowski’s Towards a Poor Theatre, edited by Eugenio Barba. Today it publishes “Open Page”, the journal of the Madalena Project of which the Odin actor Julia Varley is one of the editors.
In 2008 Odin Teatret, Theatre Arts Researching the Foundations (Malta) and the Grotowski Institute (Poland) joined to give life to Icarus Publishing Enterprise whose purpose is to present in English texts by artists and scholars about the practice and vision of theatre as a laboratory, which, despite their value, risk a limited circulation because of the language in which they have been written. The first book was published in June 2009.
