Portraits off stage

"I photographed these actors at the end of their performance.
Before they went back to their dressing room,
after the applause,
just off the stage.
The character slowly and laboriously
back to being a man,
crossed by the most violent and delicate contradictions,
still marked by this passage.
A profound moment that encloses all
the mystery and the miracle of theater."
