The theatre maker Elina Izarra’s documentary works have portrayed the way that various communities see the world and come to terms with it. Izarra has directed texts that she has written herself, including at the Rakastajat (The Lovers) Theatre in Pori and Kuopio City Theatre. Her performances have also visited Joensuu, Turku and Varkaus City Theatres. Since 2011, she has directed group-oriented performances involving artists from various disciplines for Helsinki’s Kiasma Theatre’s URB Festivals.
