Big question

"The biggest question for the clown is his mask; sometimes you search for it all your life. You try different ways, different varieties: once you find a piece of make-up, next time – a piece of costume, then – a psychological detail, the rhythm, the walk. Doing that, you can go back to different things. But first of all you’ve got to ‘catch’ yourself." — Slava Polunin
Extract from "A Monologue of the Clown, or A Pie of Ten Layers", an interview by Natalia Kazmina with the world-known Slava Polunin, the clown and festival-man, the creative mind behind the acclaimed SnowShow. Translated in 2003 by Julie Delvaux (Julia Shuvalova).
