"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"It’s playing with high-art form. I adore the ballet, but in some ways it’s a completely ridiculous art form. It is so stupid, but it can be very beautiful. And I dealt with it because of its interest to me as a classical art form that deals essentially with beauty. And then, of course, it’s complex history with Diaghilev as the disseminator of modern art, modernism, as it were, in the popular culture."
