A Theatre Laboratory Approach to Pedagogy and Creativity: Odin Theatre and Group Learning explores the pedagogy of the theatre laboratory, focusing on the seminal theatre group Odin Theatre. The structure of the book is organised in thematic areas which appraise the theatre laboratory as a learning space, the actors as learners and educators, and the ensemble's creative processes. In the concluding chapter (chap. 8) the author, Tatiana Chemi, outlines some findings from her research, envisaging possible applications in higher education settings, reflecting on third spaces (the in-between spaces), as well as examining critical approaches to education and pedagogy. In addition, the book offers a number of tools and ideas for group learning in higher education and short biographies of all the participating artists; this being a highly appreciated aspect.
