10 Questions – 10 Answers
Where would you like to wake up tomorrow morning?
Before sunrise, still a bit sleepy on a boat or on a spaceship.

Can you name a book, a movie, a piece or a song, which you think is about you?
Long ago, every time I finished Journey by Moonlight from Antal Szerb, I was afraid that I was going to resemble Mihály, the protagonist. Now it just occurs to me once in a while.

What would you do, if you wouldn’t be doing what you do now?
I would be a pathologist.

What year would you type into a time machine, and why?
I'd meet my grandfather, whom I didn't know. Maybe go back to that year when my father was sitting behind him on the motorcycle and they rode to get his stolen watch back. I'll ask for the exact date when it was.

Do you have any superstitions or rituals before entering the stage?
Being silent, bending over, breathing, stretching my spine.

Which historical figure or fictive personality would you like to share a cup of coffee/tea or a glass of wine with?
Charles Bukowski. We'd drink beer and later Jacques Derrida would join us.

What is your oldest piece of clothing?
My father's black leather tie he wore on their wedding. A brown textile jacket and pants belong to it as well. But something happened to the white shirt, I can't remember.

Which sense is the most important for you?
Seeing. If I couldn't hear, I could still speak in my head, though I don't know how my voice would change if I was growing older. Maybe it would still sound young?

Is there one fact about you, which would surprise others if they would know it?
That I can knit?  

How do you see yourself in ten years?
I hope I'll be able to grow a full beard and I'd stand on the stage like that, and I'd also watch the stage and write. I'd write mostly.
