Documentary theatre in Germany

Documentary plays are experiencing a kind of renaissance in Germany, Aureliana Sorrento writes, adding that the smaller theatres appear to be "caught up in a reality frenzy. Most of the artists who move in this world of hunger for real people have received an education in theatrical art, but they act as if they'd learned their profession at journalism school. They cut out apparently unimportant articles from newspapers, gather mountains of documentary material and throw themselves into long, tedious phases of research during which they seek out witnesses and interview them at length, compare statements and check the reliability of their sources, put together the material and adjust and polish the language. And in the end they put a new play on stage, along with its creators."
