Eugenio Barba, one of the icons of contemporary theatre, presents his first performance directed outside Odin Teatret.

The second protagonist of the section dedicated to the Grand Masters is Eugenio Barba who signs his first performance out of Odin Teatret (international company of which he is the founder and director), together with Lorenzo Gleijeses and Odin’s historic actress, Julia Varley. To complete the artistic cast is Mirto Baliani with his live music, Michele di Stefano and Chiara Lagani, Fanny and Alexander’s dramaturg and artist who consulted on the text.
A project inspired by Franz Kafka’s work in which three different narratives intersect: some biographic elements of the writer himself; the incidents befalling Gregor Samsa, the central character of The Metamorphosis; and, those befalling an imaginary dancer with the same name who, in a claustrophobic reality, remains prisoner of an obsessive repetition of his own performative material.
