She considers theatre as a space which allows individual transcendence. “I am a woman. I am a cultural record of a woman. I am interested in this record. I am in a dialogue with it. Selected objects are my partners and pretexts to create metaphors. Relationships between me, object and spectator determine the lines of tension.”
