Roberta Carreri (b.1953, Milan, Italy). Actor, teacher and organizer. She joined the Odin Teatret in 1974 during the group’s residency in Carpignano, Italy. A founding participant of ISTA (International School of Theatre Anthropology) since its beginning in 1980, she has come in contact with performing techniques from Japan, India, Bali and China, which have influenced her work both as actress and pedagogue. From 1980 to 1986 she worked with Japanese masters Katsuko Azuma (Nihon Buyo dancer), Natsu Nakajima and Kazuo Ohno (Butoh dancers). Ms. Carreri gives workshops for actors all over the world and presents, as a work demonstration, her professional autobiography Traces in the Snow. She organizes and leads the annual international workshop Odin Week in Holstebro, Denmark and abroad. Her professional experiences are presented in The Actor’s Way, edited by Erik Exe Christoffersen. She recently wrote the book Tracce (Edizioni Il Principe Costante, Milano, 2007), about her training, her pedagogy and her story as an actress of Odin Teatret.

“Rivers in extremely cold climates freeze over in winter. In the spring when they thaw the sound of ice cracking is an incredibly violent sound. The more extensive and severe the freeze, the more thunderous the thaw. Yet, at the end of the cracking, breaking, violent period, the river is open, life-giving, life-carrying. No one says, ‘let’s not suffer the thaw…’” – Mary E. Membane
