Pēteris Pētersons' (1923–1998) Poetry Theatre, 1960s and 1970s

Pēteris Pētersons was a highly cerebral director well-versed in the Brechtian mode. He established what’s called the Latvian Poetry Theatre by marrying the intense, intuitive tradition of the Dailes Theatre under Eduards Smiļģis (1886–1966, included in the Canon) with a broad theoretical outlook based on the principles of Epic theatre, upon which Pētersons innovated by way of utilising poetry instead of sociocritical drama as the basic material.
