The current members of the group avoid the words theater, actor, acting;
rather they regard their work as an awareness of a person's existence.

The members of DEREVO believe that man holds his head down.
They also believe in the importance of :
the crawling of an infant;
the beginning of a movement;
the beginning of a sound;
the equilibrium of a sleepwalker.

They realize
that man lives in a permanent state of war with the world which gave birth to him and that he's
losing this war every moment;
that man lives a short and brutal life;
that there are people who have found peace and who lead beautiful and eternal lives, but their
voices are quiet.

"We are not confident of anything but something makes us live our lives together.
We believe
that ancient books and friendship with animals are important;
that the horizon is always at your feet, and the sky begins right from the ground."
