Lev Dodin Quotes...

1:09 AM / Posted by Ashley /

This is worth its own entry. We had a wonderful Q/A session with Russian director Lev Dodin. Here are some of my favorite quotes of his from the session:

"Being a theatre director is not a job... it's a way of life."

"You have to stay a student all your life - the learning process should never stop."

"When making theatre you want to set yourself tasks that are impossible - because when they're impossible you will travel further to reach them."

"Teachers should not only teach skills, but help students form artistic personalities."

"Theatre is about getting to know things - ourselves and the world."

and finally, my favorite...

"What we do is NOT just a job or profession - it's a CALLING. The highest calling. Treat it as such."
