The actor’s original practices: ritual dances and rhythms, chants and vibrating song techniques, movement and relaxing have been chosen from the oldest traditions. They awaken sensitivity and vitality; they clean perceptions and the mind  from automatic habits; they reduce into primary expression. And they learn to see and hear.

The act of creating brings the ‘mythical reality’ of life closer. Unveil the presence of another dimension of  I and another dimension of You. In the awoken attention and in contemplation nothing is indifferent. The boundary between the inner and outer becomes more transparent. I am in Unity.

I prepare my body. I learn to eliminate tensions and to discover the organic process; the body becomes ready to act. I prepare my voice. I study resonance and the vibration of sonorous expiration, in order to become the source of sound, to become sound.Truth is not definable. It can only create the conditions which allow to free, to unveil. Because when it happens, in the act of creating, I touch freedom and renewal.This is theatre in status nascendi. There are no spectators.
