Itsi Bitsi

Dedicated to Eik Skaløe

Iben Nagel Rasmussen tells of the years preceding her arrival at Odin Teatret, years of hitchhiking round the world, of music and poetry, of political radicalism and drugs It is her story and that of Eik Skaløe (the first beat poet to sing in Danish, who committed suicide in India in ’68) and of their generation.

Some fragments of the actress’s previous performances are interwoven, not as quotations and examples, but as revealing metaphors: the mute Kattrin from Brecht’s Ashes, the wandering shaman from Come! And the Day will be Ours, the Trickster from Talabot.
