Theatre is poetry which rises up from the book and it is so human one would like to talk about it, cry and weep out of despair.

Federico García Lorca

Poetry always is an act of despair, although it is the desperate act of happiness. Poetry is also the most unusual of the usual things, as long as it respects them. If one only would have more respect for both poetry and the usual things, poetry on the contrary would then be the most common of the uncommon things...
