“At present, it is forbidden to give performances, or attract crowds, either indoors or in the street.” There is martial law in the country Odin Teatret has come to. The authorities keep a sharp eye on theatre groups who create disorder and gather crowds, because when people collect together anything can happen. In 1978, Odin Teatret travelled to Peru. The film, which shows how they managed to play their performances and come into contact with people in spite of restrictive conditions, is essentially about the strategy of insubordination by means of theatre. Odin Teatret is seen training in a slum, organising parades in Indian villages, performing in an Ayacucho prison and taking part in several barters.
