In May and June 1976 Odin Teatret toured in Venezuela. This film shows barters in Kuripe, a Venezuelan negro village, and with the Yanomami, an Indian tribe of the Upper Orinoco in Amazonia. It includes fragments from the BOOK OF DANCES and COME! AND THE DAY WILL BE OURS by Odin Teatret, as well as Yanomami dances and the shaman's enactment of his tribal legend about the tortoise which killed the jaguar. No narration.

Odin Teatret is a theatre group based in Holstebro, Denmark. It was founded by Italian theatre director Eugenio Barba in 1964. Odin Teatret is a part of NTL, Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium, which also includes the International School of Theatre Anthropology (ISTA), founded in 1979, and the Centre for Theatre Laboratory Studies (CTLS), founded in 2002. Founding Director Eugenio Barba continues to lead the company, and some of the original actors are still with the company. The current (2018) company of actors is Luis Alonso, Kai Bredholt, Roberta Carreri, Jan Ferslev, Elena Floris, Donald Kitt, Tage Larsen, Else Marie Laukvik (founding member), Caroline Pizarro, Iben Nagel Rasmussen, Julia Varley, Frans Winther, Parvathy Baul and I Wayan Bawa. Odin Teatret has created some 74 performances, of which about 25 are still in its current repertoire. A full list of performances can be found on the company's web site. The most recent performance is The Tree, which premiered in September 2016 and is now touring world wide. Odin Teatret's publishing activities began in the 1960s with the publication of the magazine T.T.T. (Teatrets Teori og Teknikk) and Jerzy Grotowski’s book Towards a Poor Theatre, which was translated into more than fifteen languages. Today it publishes books about Odin Teatret and ISTA; videos of Odin Teatret's performances, pedagogy and training; videos of other practitioners' productions and pedagogy; music; posters; and the journal The Open Page
