What is your job on this show?
Are there boundaries as to what kind of theatre you will take part in?
There is no boundaries in theater, I like the diversity of it. But I stamp my foot when I think something is cheese or indulgent. I dont understand theater as a way of patting each other on the back.
What are some of your previous theater credits? (Be specific! Name shows, etc.)
Last december I participated in the collective creation of Wearing Lorca's Bowtie, playing at The Duke Theater, Off-Broadway.
Do you think the audience will talk about your show for 5 minutes, an hour, or way into the wee hours of the night?
This is a show that will make you question your own motives. It's political and personal, and we will seed a dilemma in our audience. When we premiered '39 defaults' last june, people kept on talking about what they have not only seen, but also experienced for a while.
Groucho, Chico, Harpo, or Zeppo?
Groucho, no doubt.
Can theater bring about societal change? Why or why not?
The theater we believe in wants to make people go out from themselves and share someone else's situations and feelings. If we are able to understand others we can work together. Every problem has many perspectives. Theater can explore this diversity and we believe that empathy is one of the main keys for social change.
