Happy New Year!

 It is traditional in Greece to break a pomegranate on the ground on the New Year's day

And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Πώς πάντα ταχέως εναφανίζεται, τώ μέν κόσμω αυτά τα σώματα, τώ δέ αιώνι αι μνήμαι αυτών.

Πώς χάνονται έτσι γρήγορα τα πάντα, τα σώματα μέσα στο σύμπαν, η ανάμνησή τους μέσα στην αιωνιότητα. 

Μάρκος Αυρήλιος [Εις εαυτόν, 170-180 μ.Χ.]

Savour Life

savouring a cup of tea at Okochi-Sanso, Arashiyama (Kyoto)

What we need more and more is to savour more fully any moment of life. And I think the theatre can do this. My only aim in the theatre is that people, after the experience of one or two hours together, in some way leave more confident with life than when they came in.
