Just a note to say thank you for inviting me to such a wonderful festival and my thanks to all the people who made my stay so welcoming. I met so many artists, critics, scholars and theatre lovers and was impressed by the deep commitment to theatre and knowledge of theatre in its many variations. The program of performances was incredibly diverse, the highlights included (for me), the dance piece from Congo (combining traditional and modern styles of dance). I found the members of my workshop to be erudite, skilled and passionate, keen to soak up the ideas and share their work with others. And I was also made to feel welcome. My translators were excellent and some of the best I have worked with. The organization of the festival was also excellent, the drivers and helpers made everything run smoothly and it made being at the festival a joy. Please pass on my deep thanks and appreciation to everyone.
Thank you once again and I hope that the rest of the festival has been successful.
