"Now that I've learnt to separate the dead leaves from the important things, now that I know better what I want and that I am able to do it, now that I can undertake something relevant, I need a kind of energy I don't have anymore. I must give up on certain illusions and leave them here so that somebody else can continue them.

I can't ignore the feeling that underlies any art. In puppetry, play-acting must be foreseen in the act of creation itself, since, whenever I read a play, I imagine its performance; then, I go to work in my workshop to shape it. Later comes a time of ideas flowing back and forth, a time of things already rehearsed that I use in a different way.

The essence of theatre escapes like water in our hands. I'm always by myself, with my doubts and, at this point, I'm not sure at all of what I've done. I haven't been able to classify it, I just know that they're things I won't do again, things that have been useful in doing what I do today. I simply try to take my characters to the maximum level of expression possible and it's not only to do with mechanics: the manipulation technique has to be worked hard at, to feel no fear, to achieve, if you want to, that a puppet comes across naturally and realistically. This is extremely difficult, because the puppet must seemingly be autonomous from the puppeteer. I tend to worry more and more about freshness and sometimes I do things which are too complicated and I think: let's start over to recover that spontaneity I used to have, that I want to pretend I have, even though it's not true".

(Francisco Peralta, 2013)
