If you have to tell a story without speaking, it’s sort of like – I come from a dance background, so it’s like a ballet where you have to tell a story with just your body. I think that’s really interesting to have to tell a story with just your face and your mannerisms, and I’d like to tap into that world.

Because of this high status of the object in our culture, something has to be a thing. Live efforts are almost marginal. I think dance, for example, is just as much a thing, and I want for it to have the same status. I don’t want it to be the thing that comes in the evening and is, like, the happy music.
