"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"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."
