October, 4

Long allnight arguments...

Underground or mainstream? Long contracts or small elite festivals? Or shall we build our own theatre? Or should we follow Grotowski - at the last meeting with DEREVO at Pontedera he said "The future of Theatre depends on those like you - small companies which transfer the "cultural germs", shuttling between countries..." Or the huge halls where multitudes of people can see us on stage? Dresden, Berlin, St.Petersburg, Moscow, London??? Which language should we use to ask for coffee and biscuits?

Long allnight arguments...
