Personal statements

Moving between different arts, one can get into comical situations and get tangled in the wires.

Some questions:

What the heck do mechanics have in common with theater?
How can a puppet be simultaneously both three-dimensional and two- dimensional?
What’s bigger, a miniature or a giant puppet?
But most of all, I love to devote myself to untying knots in my laces.
