Juliette Binoche's confessions on the book Talking with Angels and the performance The Matter of Light

Oscar-winning actress Juliette Binoche has had many public readings of Talking with Angels, and has mentioned in several interviews this book about four young people's questions and their quest for answers amidst the horrors of the world war. What does this Hungarian book mean for a French actor? Why has its underlying spirituality captured her? In what ways does it help the professional work of an actor and the daily life of a woman? Why does she think it's important to present the teachings of this work also in a theatrical setting? These are some of the questions Juliette Binoche addresses in the interview on her reading performance at MITEM The Matter of Light, based on the book Talking with Angels.

“Now I Need the Epic Spaciousness of Time”

Interview with Attila Vidnyánszky

Theatres are continuously looking for texts and topics, the hic et nunc relevant ways for expression. And probably this is the main reason why we turn to these great literary achievements because these days there are not many really significant new texts. Contemporary authors do not address theatre audiences in either a very shallow, lurid way or by contriving intellectual acrobatic stunts, they do not really reach the directors’ hearts. Meanwhile there are some miracle-works, which force a man to express himself, his environment, his feelings about life through them. There are no consciously thought-out, simple concepts through which these epic works attract attention, but they demand to be performed by their own power.
