Summary/Abstract: Julia Kluzowicz and Katarzyna Targońska hold a series of interviews about work on Latvian Tales directed by Alvis Hermanis. The actors’ task was to find an ancestor of their future character among anonymous people. Based on stories taken “from the street” of the eighteen pedestrians they created stories which went on to become part of the play. Latvian Tales can be seen as Hermanis’s attempt to create a poetic reality show. Humorous descriptions of conversations with the “ancestors” are interwoven with reflections on methods of working on the roles and the use of a new theatrical language. The “ancestors” themselves take part in some of the interviews.
