Citações Julie Taymor

„I'm a director and I paint many other people… Other people's realities. But I do have to invest in it.“

—  Julie Taymor
Bill Moyers interview (2002), Context: She painted what she painted because she had to, because she was passionate about it. She didn't care at all if people bought her paintings. As she said, she painted her reality. I find that I make as an artist the kind of choices that I have to be impassioned about. I'm not going to spend two years on a film or four years on an opera if I don't feel like I can put my own self into it. That doesn't mean it has to be about myself. That's a difference. Frida painted her own reality, her life. I'm a director and I paint many other people... Other people's realities. But I do have to invest in it. On Frida Kahlo's work and her own

„You can do things that would bring people to another place and still get someone on a very daily mundane moving level but you don't have to separate art from the masses.“

—  Julie Taymor
Bill Moyers interview (2002), Context: I used to say that arts were talked about in the arts and leisure page. Now, why would it be arts and leisure? Why do we think that arts are leisure? Why isn't it arts and science or arts and the most important thing in your life? I think that art has become a big scarlet letter in our culture. It's a big "A." And it says, you are an elitist, you're effete, or whatever those things... do you know what I mean? It means you don't connect. And I don't believe that. I think we've patronized our audiences long enough. You can do things that would bring people to another place and still get someone on a very daily mundane moving level but you don't have to separate art from the masses.

„I'm trying to make the theatrical experience an environmental experience.“

—  Julie Taymor
60 Minutes interview (2010), Context: I'm trying to make the theatrical experience an environmental experience. We want to have the theatre of it right in the laps of the audience … You don't know until the last half second that he's going to be that close.

„I can't design a mask and say to someone else, "Just do it."“

—  Julie Taymor
It's partly because I'm a better sculptor than I am a drawer. Considering the amount of time it would take me to draw exactly what I want, I might as well sculpt it. I paint most of it too. It's incredibly time consuming so I end up turning down a lot of jobs I want to do. As quoted in "The Lively Arts" in Connoisseur No. 219 (1989), p. 72

„I'm really a theatre maker, but there's not a word for that.“

—  Julie Taymor
Context: I've never been a puppeteer, I conceive and I write and I design and I direct. And not just puppets. I direct actors, I direct dancers, I direct singers, I direct films. I also direct puppeteers. I'm really a theatre maker, but there's not a word for that. As quoted in "Theatre Director Probes Humanism" by Christopher Reardon in The Christian Science Monitor (13 November 1992), p. 10

„I don't think that anything that's really creative can be done without danger and risk.“

—  Julie Taymor
60 Minutes interview (2010), Context: I love it when people say "What a horrible, lousy idea." I think that's great … I hate the comfort zone … I don't think that anything that's really creative can be done without danger and risk.

„I knew it would be a challenge, but I saw the inherent theatricality in it, and I couldn’t resist.“

—  Julie Taymor
Context: Spider-Man is a genuine American myth with a dark, primal power … but it’s also got this great superhero, and — hey! — he can fly through the theater at 40 miles an hour. It’s got villains, it’s got skyscrapers, it’s colorful, it’s Manhattan. I knew it would be a challenge, but I saw the inherent theatricality in it, and I couldn’t resist. As quoted in "KA-POW! Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" http://www.vogue.com/magazine/article/ka-pow-spider-man-turn-off-the-dark/ by Adam Green at Vogue.com

„I really, really love to have people honestly be moved and inspired.“

—  Julie Taymor
Academy of Achievement interview (2006), Context: I'm not one of these people that go, "Oh well, I'm just going to do my art and I don't give a shit what anybody thinks." I don't feel that way. I really, really love to have people honestly be moved and inspired. And whether it's just here or just here — it's always better if it's the both. That's why Shakespeare is so great, because he gets you from the gut to the heart to the head, and that's what I aspire to do, more than anything.

„Joy is deeper than sorrow, for all joy seeks eternity.“

—  Julie Taymor
Academy of Achievement interview (2006), Context: In our culture, we think that happy and color is trivial, that black and darkness is deeper. But Nietzsche said — which is a line that I firmly believe — "Joy is deeper than sorrow, for all joy seeks eternity." And if you see Grendel, you'll see, as he's on the edge of the abyss, ready to leap to his death, he sings, "Is it joy I feel? Is it joy I feel?" And it's so, so moving. You can have a lot of different explanations for the ending of that opera, but there is something so palpable that you will feel when he sings those lines.

„We have a ways to go in understanding the power of puppetry“

—  Julie Taymor
Context: We have a ways to go in understanding the power of puppetry … Our problem is for too long we have thought of puppets being for children. … The appeal of puppetry to me is it's much more freeing for an artist … Puppetry is a completely controllable means to attack your characters in every possible way. The artist has the possibility to create a much larger landscape with puppetry. The human becomes more human in that sense. Another of the great things about puppetry is the ability to transform. As quoted in "New York at Work; Puppeteer Creates Shows for Grown-Ups" by N. R. Kleinfield The New York Times (2 July 1991) http://www.nytimes.com/1991/07/02/nyregion/new-york-at-work-puppeteer-creates-shows-for-grown-ups.html

„The concrete world isn't necessarily the most powerful world.“

—  Julie Taymor
Academy of Achievement interview (2006), Context: The concrete world isn't necessarily the most powerful world. The world of the mind — whether you're watching Matrix or whatever — the world that's inside here has the power to do a lot of good and a lot of damage.

„I read a lot of books that are, for lack of a better word, cross-cultural.“

—  Julie Taymor
Academy of Achievement interview (2006), Context: I read a lot of books that are, for lack of a better word, cross-cultural. I find movies and books that take me — transport me to another culture are the things that I'm most interested in, and always have been.
