Tutkiva teatteri - Investigative Theater

Tutkiva teatteri means "Investigative Theater" in Finnish - a fact we learned when Alix Lambert, one of our R&D Group playwrights and Associate Artists, was interviewed by Janne Junttila, a Finnish journalist, who is writing a book about contemporary documentary theater. The video of the interview, below, shows her talking about her project Crime, USA, for which she's been traveling around the country conducting interviews with criminals, cops, crime writers, pawnshop owners, the FBI, the DOJ, experts on serial killers, former gang members, and more. The journalist also got some footage from inside an R&D Group meeting, showing a short clip of Mia Chung's project and the discussion. Check it out!

PLUS, Janne Junttila has collected short excerpts of the interviews he has made here Interviewees include Judith Malina (a student of Erwin Piscator), Anna Deavere Smith, Nicolas Kent and Richard Norton-Taylor of London's Tricycle Theatre, German group Rimini Protokoll, British director Peter Cheeseman's widow, one Russian, Icelandic and Finnish theatre group. We're thrilled to be included in this awesome project!
