"Within minutes, various actors began to play the different roles, and the story suddenly became a play... moments of life became before my amazed eyes theatrical moments of magic"
"Four actors brought up our mythological date through four different monologues and turned it into an array of sites that directly reflected my life story in a personal and meaningful way, and on the other hand, made it an artistic, aesthetic and universal experience.
Needless to say, I came out amazed. "
