Limitations force you to find the essence of what you want to say, which is one of the most important things to know for an artist.
As quoted in "Oh, girl : A Talk with Julie Taymor" at Subtitles to Cinema (2 September 2008)
Spider-Man is a genuine American myth with a dark, primal power … but it’s also got this great superhero, and — hey! — he can fly through the theater at 40 miles an hour. It’s got villains, it’s got skyscrapers, it’s colorful, it’s Manhattan. I knew it would be a challenge, but I saw the inherent theatricality in it, and I couldn’t resist.Julie Taymor
To me, where theater has it all over film is that it’s in the moment, it’s tactile, you feel it …You’re completely immersed in it — right here and right now.Julie Taymor
