„What does today’s scenography mean to you?“

„Body / space / structure / movement: one image that sums-up and emphasizes the dramaturgy of a piece if it is not itself the subject of the piece.“


„What artwork did you find interesting in the past few months?“

„It’s not exactly new and it’s not from past few months, but it is an essential source of inspiration: Aurélien Bory / cie 111 / performance PLEXUS“
