The theater is engaged in a strange business: someone wrote something (a play), someone learns the text and goes on stage. A full room sits and listens and watches him. If the performance is touching, the audience has interested eyes like children. This is a very unique activity.

I remember the juggler in front of the shrine on Our Lady’s Day. And people come to him and ask: what are you doing here on such a vacation? And he says: I am juggling in honor of Our Lady. why I can’t do anything else.

We do it like this: we do something mysterious, obvious, not abstract, but very important.

I love theater actors. Working in theater for money is not realistic. They work here because of need. In my opinion, it is an incredible necessity to come home to us. And may God not lose this house. Theater is a complex medium. We see how many revolutionary events are happening in drama life. Many dissatisfactions, many difficulties. All teams have problems. All artists are selfish. They think they are the best in the world. But that’s how it should be.
