Q: What is the essence of your life as a border artist?

My life is my children and theater, this is who I am. Theater is the attempt to be the voice of human frailty. A theater against forgetting, a theater that makes visible what power attempts to conceal, distort or deny. A theater that bares the perverse machinery of a system that is now autonomous and against which we must resist, resist and resist.

Cual es la esencia de tu vida como artista fronterizo?

Mi vida son mis hijos y el teatro, desde esto que soy, intento que el teatro sea una voz solidaria con la fragilidad humana. Un teatro contra el olvido, un teatro que visibilice lo que el poder pretende ocultar, tergiversar o negar. Un teatro que desnude la perversa maquinaria de un sistema que ya es autónomo y contra el que hay que resistir, resistir y resistir.
