The library related to performing arts, Odin Theater Company's 50-year work, is well-organized.

It's worth experiencing with Grothowski in that it's a very important legacy of the Urum avant-garde play.

What do you want to say to writers interested in the residency program?

The mainstream theater circle has kept a little distance from ODIN Theatre. It will be very interesting program for those artists who have an interest in the essential of the theater and believe in the strength of ODIN's spirit. The fact itself is a target for research that ODIN keeps their own unique system and training method, and creation method for a long time. It is also valuable to experience in the aspect of a very important inheritance of Avant-Garde Theatre of Europe along with Grotowski.
