Questions and dilemma…
When I am looking back on my contributions to the platform – these ones which concern the performance dedicated to one of my young actors addicted to drugs (Magic Mountain or a few facts from M`s life – see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2vc53-wJbo), I have to ask myself the same question which has been echoing in my mind for many years: does art really have power to influence and change our life? And how can we ”measure” it? Thanks to his great passion for theatre, this young boy managed to overcome addiction. But after several years he was back to drugs. On the other hand, the young audience after seeing our show admit that it was a powerful experience for them. But can it really help them to avoid serious risks in the future? Maybe this is simply a wrong question? Maria
