Lauri Lagle


Lauri Lagle graduated the Drama School of Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre as an actor in 2006. He has worked as an actor and director at the Estonian Drama Theatre and Theatre NO99, and several films directed by Veiko Õunpuu (Free Range; Roukli). The topic of the society’s reclusion in everyday boredom in the form of bringing podium worlds to the stage has often been present in his productions. In Porcelain Smoke (2007), the protagonist fled to schizophrenia from the everyday responsibilities; You Have a Sea-Full of Fear (2009) and Untitled (2010) dealt with the self-destructive protest of creative personalities against the everyday world (or traditions) and the characters of Am I Alive Now (2010) tried to break the routine with tiny acts of rebellion. NO65 The Big Feast (2012) was inspired by the Marco Ferrer’s film La Grande Bouffe (1973) and was nominated for the Best Directing, and also received the Estonian Theatre Critics and Researchers’ award for Good Theatre. His most recent performance in Theatre NO99 was NO54 Wednesday (2013).
