Perrine Yarar: Which projects are you working on at the moment?
Noemi Egloff: I’ve spent the last couple of weeks and months working on my Bachelor’s thesis. I’m trying to show how the materiality and arrangement of texts affect how they are read by actors. Texts have a body and a shape, so I’m using analogue materials like paper, scissors, and glue. I hope I’ll be able to develop the project a bit further, to be able to publish it later.
How do you prepare for a performance?
I seldom have real stagefright. When I’m on stage myself, I have my emergency kit with me: anxiety-relief globules, superglue, and of course red lipstick for the after-performance party.
