Dona Musica's Butterflies
Dona Musica’s Butterflies is a performance about identity. It is the story of a character who has escaped from a performance by Odin Teatret - Kaosmos - and tells of her origins and adventures in terms of entomology, through theories of modern physics and with poems and tales from other times.
Odin Teatret is one of the most influential groups in contemporary theatre. It has a worldwide reputation for its artistic achievements, based on the discipline of its rigorous actor training and on the appreciation and relevance of multiculturalism in the performing arts.
Performed by Julia Varley. Text and scenography by Julia Varley. Directed by Eugenio Barba.
Julia Varley was born in 1954 in London. She started at Odin Teatret in 1976. Apart from acting Julia has been active in writing, directing and organising. She is responsible for Transit Festival, an International Theatre Festival and Meeting, and she is editor of The Open Page, a journal devoted to women’s work in theatre. Julia has also written a novel about the character of Dona Musica, entitled 'Wind in the West'.
