I think I got disappointed over the years about New York, about the States. You know, sometimes you go and visit Europe and see good old socialism in its good part! You see public concern about art, and young people’s participation and young faces in the audience. Then you arrive in the States and it is $150 to go to an opera. Ridiculous. We have so much young talent on the streets, but because everything is commercial they finally drift away from their dream of their life. – The Daily Telegraph, 09/02/2004

That somebody has the vision to put a few steps together and make a dance out of it, there is already a certain power implanted. My job is much easier – it’s just to put a light in it. – The Daily Telegraph, 09/02/2004
