Marta Waldera

I can’t imagine life without a sense of freedom. I experience it most fully while hiking in the mountains or riding my bike, preferably doing long, several-week-long routes. You can really ‘shed’ you city skin then. Your mind and body can enjoy the unlimited space, the dense darkness of the night (impossible in the city), letting go of your watch. Ascending and descending mountain passes makes me feel the sense of life. I look for such moments in my work on stage. I am happy when I am ‘here and now’, I have a theme that touches me, and a partner who is my companion on this journey. Then a play may become a journey into the unknown. My search for such experiences has led me to improvisation workshops with Steen Haakon Hansen. For over a year I have been learning the art of improvisation together with my friends from the Impro Krk group. I would also like to add that another great teacher of improvisation is my little son.
