I try to begin with no pre-suppositions. I only have your questions as the cradle for hoped-for answers, which may dance in or never appear. It all happens between us, it’s a ‘between us-ing’. It is an object, and a door, and space – a welcoming space. It is a space with the capacity for conflict, despair and tragedy. And yet for hope, and for dreams: all things. So, for me, it’s important that there are places… magic…places, where I give up part of my – what could I say – what would gratify me. What I do…it’s swallowed, eaten up by the actors. It becomes, really, flesh and blood. It becomes their body, their movements,  it’s a breath that they inspire, and that sends them acting, being active in a way that is passive because they’re sent…in an innocent way. So all of us, we offer up part of our – what should I say – properties, what we own, etc.,  in order to try and reach a horizon which is very far away, just ideal and dream-like.
