Across North America and Europe, huge audiences gather in landmark theaters to witness live journalism: reported stories performed with audio, video, live music, dance, and more. They’re participating in a new genre you could call 'theatrical journalism’. These audiences connect emotionally with stories, with storytellers, and with each other. How can journalism animate live experiences? Why live journalism is a tool to build trust and engage with audiences, including defiant ones? How can theater bring a feeling of wonder and immersion to reported narratives? What new formats might we imagine? Meet live journalism pioneer Douglas McGray, in discussion with Florence Martin-Kessler.
