Theatre Quote: Ariane Mnouchkine

“‘The end of history?’ That amuses me.  Saying this one risks the loss of language and the loss of the possibility of thinking; one risks becoming more and more passive, able to be bought and sold.  Theatre is doubtless the most fragile of the arts, the theatre public is now really a very small group, but the theatre keeps reminding us of the possibility to collectively seek the histories of people and to tell them.  The contradictions, the battle of power, and the split in ourselves will always exist.  I think the theatre best tells us of the enemy in ourselves.  Yes, theatre is a grain of sand in the works.”

Ariane Mnouchkine
