“After many years, I feel compelled to return to art, because I can no longer see another way forward. I am deeply troubled by the direction of our world, and the degradation of our discourse by the agendas of corrupt, populist politicians, and a corporatized intellectual and artistic elite.  I hope to revisit the radical potential of twentieth century European avant-garde theatre because I believe it allows for complex and wide-ranging forms of artistic and intellectual expression, challenging conventional forms of representation and consciousness without surrendering to sentimentality or postmodern nihilism.” - Emil Varda
