Dublin Theatre Festival


Arpad Schilling

“I always wanted to be an actor. To prove in front of the camera or on stage that I exist. What I am saying or how and why did not count. All that counted was the gesture of saying it – pure exhibitionism. To whom I was trying to prove it? Surely to my mother, surely to all women. In the end I did not become an actor. I am a director and as such, I always try to say something instead of just being on stage. But for that I need to understand myself first of all. Every production is another step towards inside. This is no theory, this is action. And the spectator buys his ticket to enjoy my anguish. I hope he does.”
