So here I am… As you can see with a laugh, a story and invention, every time I am on this stage and do a Play I realize that I am made of Theatre. Theatre is my temple, my substance, my time is The Time for Theatre and I am the one that decides that time. Theatre: a river that overwhelms me and I am that river, a tiger that devastates me and I am that tiger, a fire that consumes me and I am that fire.
