Sylvie Guillem's Evidentia | Thoughts on doubt

To give, to project emotion you have always to be doubtful about what you do, about what you are going to do, and what you did also.

Because to doubt and to take risk, create like a moment of urgenc[y] to find real emotion, I think.

Otherwise, if you prepare too much, if you think too much about it, all the instinct and all of yourself - if you are able to give a bit of yourself - is going to hide somewhere behind the steps, behind the choreography, behind all these kinds of things it is easy [to hide behind]. But if you doubt it you portray yourself naked.
