"In everyday life 'if' is a fiction, in the theatre 'if' is an experiment. In everyday life 'if' is an evasion, in the theatre 'if' is the truth. When we are persuaded to beleive in this truth, than the theatre and life are one. This is a high aim. It sounds like hard work. To play needs much work. But when we experience the work as play, than it is not work any more. A play is play." -- Peter Brook. The Empty Space, p. 157.
