Odin Teatret Work Demonstration –– With: Julia Varley –– Production: Odin Teatret (Denmark)
The Echo of Silence is a work demonstration which describes the vicissitudes of the voice of an actor and the stratagems she invents to“interpret”a text. The voice of the actors and the text presented to the spectators compose the music of a performance. In theatre, which is apparently free of the codes that we know in music, the actor needs to create a labyrinth of rules, references and resistance to follow or refuse so as to achieve a personal expression and recognise her own voice. The Echo of Silence touches on some of the moments of this process letting the perception of the spectator slip through the technical discipline revealing the person behind the actor and the silence behind the voice.
