About this book

This book considers the pedagogy of the theatre laboratory, focusing on seminal theatre group Odin Teatret. It provides a detailed discussion of the historical background to theatre laboratories, including their conception, before moving on to specific examples of how the work at Odin Teatret crosscuts creativity, pedagogy, and research practices. The book draws on a range of insightful sources, including historical readings and previous literature, interviews with members of the theatre group, autoethnographic pieces, and personal experiences. Its unique narrative brings fresh insights into how to establish inquiry-based learning laboratories, in order to re-think higher education. It will be an invaluable resource for students and academics working on performance, creativity studies and pedagogy.

Reviews

“A thoughtfully researched book that provides insightful knowledge about a seminal theatre group.  The focus around Odin Teatret brings the narratives on theatre labs into a fresh light.” (George Belliveau, Professor of Theatre Education, University of British Columbia, Canada)

“I think most of us know that magic happens in the theatre. Chemi takes us inside the place where the magic starts – the theatre laboratory – and shows us what goes on and helps us think about it in ways that will perhaps allow the rest of us to make our own magic.” (Steven S. Taylor, Professor of Leadership & Creativity, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, UK)

“Chemi opens up a fascinating space in which to consider the pedagogy of the theatre laboratory . Her long term relationship with Odin theatre brings an authenticity to this book that surprises as much as it delights.” (Allan Owens, Professor of Drama Education, University of Chester, UK)
