Another question asked was, "What is more popular, a career in film or a career in theatre in Cuba?" His answer didn't surprise anyone; that a career in film is more desired, due to international renown and easier fame. But what he added to the end of his response was very touching. He said that many, after working in film and television for a while, would return to theatre to VALIDATE themselves and their work and to get back into that "real" performance of theatre.
What we do is such a beautiful thing and witnessing someone else from another country who shares that love and passion was invigorating.
Live and love,
