Journalist: What are the themes of Torna amore?

Sebastian Irigo: It explores what remains somewhere in the soul or the heart, on the shelf of what I would have liked to experience in life. That is the point of identification that I noticed when I first read the work and where I believe we all go through at some point. It speaks of delving into oneself, finding oneself, being honest and living the life that beats inside us and does not want to ask for more permission.

Q: There is a complicated mother-daughter relationship. What happened to them that their bond was damaged?

YEAH: They are not encouraged by customs, mandates, the life that exists in that particular atmosphere and those established parameters. Because there is no other possible way of thinking about life. And things are just like that and that’s it. And that is precisely what is put into crisis. Everything can be overcome and everything changes more easily than we think.

Q: The graphic has always had an open cage, what is the metaphor of the parrot?

YEAH: The parrot symbolizes freedom of decision and choice. Despite living armed, comfortable and with everything he needs covered, he sees the open window and does not hesitate, he flies. He takes courage, dives into the deep and jumps to his own destiny without a net.

Q: What is it like to do independent theatre today?

YEAH: Independent theatre has always been a matter of hard work, determination and diligence. It is still the same but without any kind of help or cultural incentive from the State. In Argentina, the enormous theatrical activity is tied to the passion and talent of the artists and not to a cultural promotion plan. We create our cultural reality against all odds, that does not happen in other parts of the world. It is a source of pride, but it is something that we generate on our own. It would be good to have the State’s interest in culture because that identifies us and makes us unique in the global context. Understanding that making ourselves unique is an essential issue to be a great country, a large part of that begins with culture.
