From Gaulier: Character, was created, Why?

Because the students always play too much, so much that they lose their aura, their charm, their soul. We will improvise. We will play scenes. We will write for him or her. They’ll have one week to discover which characters their desire carries them towards, and to discover that playing means giving what the audience needs in order to continue dreaming about the character, not an ounce more that this. An ounce more would break the charm and everything would fall back onto the ground again in reality, in a thousand pieces.
