“In our rational and pragmatic century, where else can you meet such fools who keep waiting and hoping if not at the theatre?” (Rimas Tuminas)

“It is a game, everything is a game. When all four of them are lying on the ground, that cannot be handled naturalistically. That has got to be done artificially, balletically. Otherwise everything becomes an imitation, an imitation of reality. It should become clear and transparent, not dry. It is a game in order to survive” (Samuel Beckett).
