“It’s not that theatre wants to shock, but there is beauty in wildness, in taking risks. And that is something fundamental. It’s like the big life questions in ancient Greek theatre. What is sacred? That is something we have lost. These must be always boundaries in society, but the most interesting things happen on the borders of those boundaries. And when people step over those boundaries, they give something else a push, they bring the unexpected to light. «Molly Bloom» is an instrument that helps us to understand or feel these boundaries. And step over and come back again. She says ‘yes’ to life – even if you face hardships, have trouble defining yourself. If there is no risk, why bother? I’ve never been afraid of landing with my face in the mud.” – Viviane De Muynck
