"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"Captain Tatarinov trembles from cold, shivers, and eats bad meat (Pantomime 6/E)," production still (2003)
"If there’s an aspect of the work (if, for example, we have to make a costume for an aboriginal from the Russian arctic) and we need to make a decision, certainly there’s research we can do to say, "This is what an aboriginal from the Russian arctic looks like." But sometimes it’s okay if we just guess because it’s the guessing and making of mistakes that then say something about what we don’t know. And that is a kind of truth."
