Which educational experience really made an impression on you?
The work I did on expressive mime technique with my pantomime teacher Adam Darius in London. He always said “come out!” I’ll never forget that. It didn’t matter how expressive you were trying to be, he just continued to say “come out!”. To be honest, I still don’t quite know what he meant by that. But it certainly had a strong influence on me!

What was the last nice thing you bought yourself?
Wonderful green Matcha tea. A while back, my wife gave me a complete tea ceremony set with a small broom as a gift. And I just bought another little tin of tea. You need to try it: supposedly it makes you really old.
