Mark Rylance: " The great actors are interested in the life of each performance. They make their performances to last, and not so brittle that they'll break. They want to surprise each other, to keep it fresh, to bring the sense of discovery and fun from the rehearsal room into the performance. You have to move into chaos. For the audience to have a sense that something has happened, there needs to be a fleeting moment of confusion."
