Roberta Carreri is one of acclaimed theatre company Odin Teatret's longest-serving actors, and the last to be trained by Eugenio Barba himself. In this book, she relives the milestones of her professional journey, including:

  • her first experiences of street theatre
  • the discovery of Asian performance traditions
  • pedagogical activities and character creation
  • encounters with artists and spectators
  • the inception of her solo performances, Judith and Salt

Interwoven with rich photographic documentation and a wealth of biographical information, this inspiring handbook reveals the professional secrets of an Odin Teatret actor as well as the story of a life of work, research, and passion.
