Icelandic theatre?

Time Out New York theatre critic David Cote has posted a sneak peak of his upcoming feature for Theatre magazine – a piece on Iceland’s burgeoning theatre scene. A sample:

“So the country is stable, affluent and educated. There is a healthy theatergoing culture, but a self-sustaining experimental scene still needs to be nurtured. Iceland has not produced its Robert Wilson, its Wooster Group, its equivalent of Off-Off Broadway, or even its own exportable mainstream playwrights. Its productions hardly ever make it to the Brooklyn Academy of Music or Le Festival d’Avignon.”
