I’m saying that there is something private in an actor, something entirely his own, even if that something is only his vanity and stupidity, but still that something is very important to him, something that will not yield to the part, something that is resisting and wants to exist and live independently, regardless of the playwright and the part. And in this case there is no real playwright, because, naturally, you’re completely right, this is not theatre… But this complicates the matters even more. You give her a universal mission, and everything else is left to her improvisation, or, in other words, to the taste, imagination and intelligence of a female circus performer.
