“About the Stage Direction Three Beggars, a Rich Man and Other Urban Adventures allows the performers, despite certain constraints, enormous liberty of expression and interpretation. We felt that we needed to step back from the traditional rigidity of a director coming with predetermined casting. The force of this performance stems from the spontaneity of the performers, who settled into their roles as the rehearsals progressed. This project is also of educational value: the use of theatrical techniques reinforces the independence and autonomy of the young actors.
With this work, we undertake the transmission of knowledge, becoming both companions and masters to emulate rather than remaining in the stage director’s traditional role. The artistic result is as important as the educational development of the young performers.”
