"I'M INTERESTED IN CREATING MULTI-LAYERED PRODUCTIONS WITH STRONG VISUAL ELEMENTS. I WANT TO PRESENT CLASSICS IN A CONTEMPORARY SETTING WITHOUT CHANGING THE INTENTIONS OF THE PLAYWRIGHT, BUT BY ASKING WHERE ITS RELEVANCE FOR OUR TIME LIES. MY THEATRE IS THOUGHT-PROVOKING, 
BECAUSE I BELIEVE THE PURPOSE OF THEATRE IS TO ASK THE QUESTIONS, NOT TO PROVIDE THE ANSWERS.”
