"May your work be compelling and original,
may it be profound and touching, contemplative and unique,
may theatre help us to reflect on the question of what it means to be human,
and may that reflection to be blessed with heart, sincerity, candor and grace. [...]
May you be blessed with the talent and rigor to teach us about the beating of the human heart and all its complexity, and the humility and the curiosity to make it your life's work.
And may be the best of you -for it only be the best of you, and even then only in the rarest and briefest moments- succeed in framing that most basic of questions: how do we live."
(World Theater Day Message 2012)
