THE SURVIVING QUESTIONS
1. IN ONE SENTENCE, HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE WHAT YOU DO?
I believe there’s a beautiful light inside every and each human being we call “life” that, just like water, takes the form of what holds it. I try with my art to catch this light, because my aim is to portrait life, a portrait in which you can observe these characters who stage this unique and constant movement. The word art comes from “artificial”, “Kunst ist etwas künstliches” (art is something artificial), it’s illusion, this is the reason why I love theater, above all, in its own right and form, this is what I want to explore. Theater is absolutely an illusion, and it’s exactly in illusions and dreams that you can draft reality, reality who can also become possible.
