HOORAY FOR LIFE
Inspired by women of the Nineteenth Century
“The actor is a traveller in space and time and he uses the character and the stories to find his way. He flies with the map of memory and of fantasy, but his feet really draw the earth.
Does the actor speak about his own life?
The poet speaks about himself through his rhymes. The painter speaks about himself through his colours. And what about the actor? Through the techniques I meet the characters, through the characters I speak about myself.
What do painter Frida Kahlo and writer Ingeborg Bachmann have in common? Frida had her back and her dream broken by the metal of a tram gone haywire, and so she decided to paint, using her mouth when she was immobilized in her bed. For Ingeborg her passionate poetry and her bright wit were the gift distilled by the waste of a world war.
As I travel from one to the other I slowly understand, ever more so as I meet them and I see myself reflected in them.”
