    "Art, be it poetry, visual art, drama or dance, is the transformation of what is real into magic, and converting what is magical into a tangible reality, for we perceive that there are, beyond those infantile voices, even more primordial voices. We artists guess the being of those most archaic voices; deeper, and more sagacious - spoken in a language of legend, yet we feel them as not mere legend, but simultaneously as dream and symbol"
