Why do you make theatre?
I am attracted to theatre because it is a free place, an intro- and extrospective place, a curious place, a place of imagination and craft, a place of social exchange, a laboratory of thought.
What kind of future do you dream of?
My dream future is greener, more inclusive and more equal - up and down.
