Latvian playwrights and dramaturges: current vibes

Krista Burāne


On a daily basis I am creating theatre and film authorship works. I mostly work with documentaries and participatory performances, so my job is to create dramaturgical material for performances based on conversations with people and research of various documents. From what I learn and discover, I then make compositions of the testimonies of various beings which usually are less heard, unheard or silenced. So that the audience has the opportunity to experience amazing encounters. For the past few years, I have been paying attention to the relationship between man and nature. I try to disrupt and question the anthropocentric world order, and consciously and purposefully give an active role to the viewers of the show as well. I also write scripts for animated and documentary films. It has been an honor to receive various nominations and awards for both – performances and films.
