Odin Teatret in Poland, 2005

Wednesday, 5 March 2014

From Wednesday 23 April – Saturday 26 April, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama is honoured to host the groundbreaking Odin Teatret, together with their award-winning director Eugenio Barba, for a series of exclusive master classes, work demonstrations and film screenings.  The event will also feature an ‘In Conversation’ between Central’s Head of Acting, Geoffrey Colman, and Eugenio Barba, the great Maestro himself.

The acclaimed international theatre company will be in London for the first time in its long history to present The Chronic Life at the Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler’s Wells.  Alongside this tour, Central will welcome Odin Teatret to the Embassy Theatre for a very special four-day residency.

Availability for this rare event is extremely limited, and spaces in master classes are sure to fill up quickly, so advanced bookings are strongly encouraged.
