Torgeir Wethal


 

Torgeir Wethal (1947 - 2010) was an actor, teacher, film and theatre director. He was born in 1947, in Oslo, Norway. Torgeir Wethal was one of the founders of Odin Teatret in whose performances he participated since its beginning in 1964. Before joining Odin Teatret he worked as actor in amateur productions. His professional experiences are published in The Actor's Way edited by Erik Exe Christoffersen. He was in charge of the production of Odin Teatret Film and directed several films about Odin Teatret's own performances and journeys, as well as films on actor's training which include documentaries on Etienne Decroux's Corporeal Mime, Jerzy Grotowski's Teatr Laboratorium and Odin Teatret. Torgeir Wethal closely followed the project Regula contra Regulam in collaboration with Raúl Iaiza and Teatro della Madrugada (Italy) and the Grotowski Centre (Poland). In the 1990s he followed the Natascha Network of theatre groups and in 2008 and 2009 worked with Roberta Secchi as directing advisor for her performance on Lorca.
