The Dead Brother is an explanation of how performances are created at Odin Teatret. It describes the stages in the work, starting out from a poetic text which becomes a “poem in space”: the performance.
It presents the different phases of the process in which text, actor and director interact. It shows how the actor creates his/her own stage presence until the final synthesis in which the text, through the form and precision of the actions, acquires a rhythm and density of meaning.
