"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."
"I just love being able to travel into a different space, a different realm. And theatricality is a device for doing that. Then you can deal with everyday issues but be transgressive—take it to a different place. And a theatrical device allows me to do that."
