Mónica Sánchez Self Portrait 1981



As a theatre-maker

I’m striving to understand,

to translate, and to transform

the metaphor of the world

through the world of metaphor



My creative ground zero is process.

Ideally, it begins and ends with presence,

a respect for the wisdom of the body,

for the subconscious

and the collective unconscious--  

as catalyst to 

 provoke our presumptions

and assuage our sorrows.


To be present on either side of the stage

during a performance

is akin to throwing down the gauntlet

to the cell phone, to the computer, to the car—

all things that compartmentalize and isolate us...

if only for ninety minutes.




Following an impulse towards unity.


This is why I make theatre.
