world…centre…theatre…

where is the centre of ourselves…

who are we…

when ,among this question,appears the need to do theatre…to say something through it…

is it absolutely necessary…

for me everything starts with the complete readiness to be honest..

otherwise there is no sense…

simply honest…a simple thing…not complicated…this for me is the starting minimum…

and i go…

and i enter through the doors of ‘ theatrum mundi ‘ project…

and i meet actresses and actors with different identities,created by different traditions,invented under different conditions…

and we all try to understand where is the beginning of theatre…its long path till today…till the space of our sala,where we are working together…

the existance of so many forms of theatre proves it is an act of resistance…

there is no easy place for making theatre possible…we all share this fact…

and that’s why our meeting is not usual for me…

i am astonished by this possibility,which by itself is already a reason…to be here…to do….

but for me above all is the condition that we are alive…and we are human beings….here and now…

so, before doing is remembering….is a memory…who we are…where do i come from, how do i enter here,what do i carry,what is my gift…

and as the project puts the question of betrayal …do we ask ourselves…where is my kiss of betrayal…where i am not honest…do i deserve doing this ancient craft by inserting something fake,ugly,pretentious, not sincere into it…if i lie, i stay alone,with no partners…who are my partners,what are their desires,do i really want to know…is it a living theatre/for theatre is not only a ready performance/  or something dead to me…

and if i really ask myself and really try to answer to these questions i am getting closer to who am i…and how do i belong to theatre…

the project is also  very much connected with our belongig to theatre…and it is not a coincidence that this question created the poetical dimenssion of our work….

and it is a duty also for the poetry …to be very honest…

and as we wok on comedy,we have to stay very naked…knowing our own misery…trying to understand the otherness…the other culture…and may be we can define what really is our art…

there are so many traditions that we do not know…

we are here to discover something…

we are here to disguse ourselves…to show our most precious desires…we have to work with our desires…to practise them…to make them visible for the other,the one next to me…it is not only me-inside myself…

otherwise we are loosing the live connection with theatre…

otherwise we are loosing the beauty…

otherwise we are loosing the poetry…
