Extract from an interview with Leris at the Anjos do Picadeiro festival in Rio de Janeiro in 2007.
Leris: Clown seeing everything like a child, is a parody of life.
Moshe: What do you think about Tortell’s words, that Clown is a provoker of sentiments, his language is that of feelings?
Leris: Eco , Si. To offer human feelings, human generosity….Clown it is not only the show, the performance. The clown has to give to the audience, I don’t know why. If the performer doesn’t give something from inside, Ok the show is swell, but after a few days, nobody remembers; if there is no soul, no heart.
