“I believe that theatre is best when it is fanatically theatrical. This is its one chance of survival. It will never be satisfactory as journalism, television, or cinema. Neither can it just be literature. It has to remember that it is theatre.”
– Ariane Mnouchkine
What is theatrical then?
As a performer, I have a body, a heart, a mind, a voice.
I move in space in front of an audience.
I say things.
I tell a story.
I feel things.
Then the audience feels things.
Maybe those things make them feel more things.
It all happens right now.
That is theater.
