Wanting to be Interested

"Soap Opera" by Andrea Gabilondo. Photo , Teresa Couto

An audience may sit waiting for a performance to begin, wanting to be interested, persuading itself that it ought to be interested. It will only be irresistibly interested if the very first words, sounds or action of performance release deep within each spectator a first murmur related to hidden themes that gradually appear.

Peter Brook
