"Because everyone is a creature that makes mistakes. That's why actors need a substitute. Like me."

The ballet "La Sylphide" is performed by pliers and spanners on a tool box in a corner of a metalworking factory.
When I started attending all performances of "Les Miserables" at the Imperial Theater with the insurance money from a traffic accident, I met a girlfriend who lived at the theater and was a "failure attendant".
I ended up living as a decorative actor in a small theater that a rich old man built just for himself in the back of his mansion.

To act, to watch, to be watched. A superb collection of short stories that depict the special relationship that is born on the other side of the stage and here.
