Playing is a return to the intense innocence of childhood but also a snub to boredom. It is a vitality test that keeps desire intact. As long as desire persists, one does not die.
Playing is to forge a daily way of life that evades the obsession with quantitative evaluation. Keeping part of freedom, and the unexpected, alive. Interesting oneself in these life spans, as vital as they are useless, in these discrete locations where everyone is returned to his or her most intimate depths and yet where he/she encounters others.
We create performances because everyone is flawed, incomplete; human beings need to dream, to fall in love, tell jokes, and share stories to compete their experience of the world. Playing is rightly one of the most delicious ways to share.The place we meet is the place we play.
“It’s high time for the borders within us to fall (…) It’s time we were intoxicated by the still unknown places within us, opening up the confines of our true identity. It’s time for me to have no other horizon than that of my dizzying complexity since it is here that I can fully enjoy the fierce and caressing poetry of not setting myself any boundaries.” MARCEL MOREAU
