Julie Taymor Quotes / Quotations

After I had received the Watson Fellowship and had been two years in Indonesia on this traveling fellowship, I stayed to start my own theater company.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


Americans in particular are myopic. They're not traveling as much. When you were a college student, the next thing you would do on graduation was to take a year off and travel. That's what I did. I went to Indonesia.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


And I just think that to introduce an unknown Shakespeare is thrilling, too - not to do Hamlet or Romeo and Juliet, to do the richer Shakespeare. People will come to this and not know the story.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


But I don't think there has ever been anything written on the nature of violent man as deep and as thorough as Shakespeare's Titus. I think it puts all modern movies and modern exploitations of violence to shame.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


I am, to be quite honest, sick of hero stories.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


I have directed good actors and have gone through the process which is more detailed in theater in a way. You have to get people to stay for two or three hours in a performance. They need more talk and rehearsal than in films.
Quotation of Julie Taymor

Quotation of Julie Taymor


I have never had a problem with people not being able to understand the words and the meanings in Titus.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


I love Lion King and I adore the production, but for my first film I gravitated to the best writer in the English language with an important story to tell, with the best actors in the business, and I got them.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


I really do believe that if you don't challenge yourself and risk failing, that it's not interesting.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


I received from my experience in Japan an incredible sense of respect for the art of creating, not just the creative product. We're all about the product. To me, the process was also an incredibly important aspect of the total form.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


I use cinematic things in a theatrical way on stage, and in film I use theatrical techniques in a cinematic way.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


I'm not going to spend two years on a film or four years on an opera if I don't feel like I can put my own self into it. That doesn't mean it has to be about myself.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


In theater, you can be much more abstract and simple and be suggestive. When we do the savannah in The Lion King, people walk with platters of grass on their heads, and the audience gets it. They get that that's a field that's moving grass.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


It's people who are repressed and cannot express their fears that are dangerous.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


My father was a doctor. He's gone now. Mother was in politics, but she has an artistic flair. I think she's very dramatic.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


One of the reasons I love to jump back and forth between mediums is that film does allow me to be more literal. I can go to the real place. I can go to the Coliseum, and I don't have to fake it.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


People will justify whatever for a good cause.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


Theater evolves through religion to be the mediator between the darkness and existence, to help you get over the hump of a bad season and no rice paddies and a sickness, a demon that's come into your family and has spread malaria.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


Theater is far superior to film in poetry, in abstract poetry.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


There is incredible power in the arts to inspire and influence.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


We feel that Grendel is very, very potent as to where we are today, which may not be any different than where we were in the 10th Century.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


We have often been attracted to the story of the other, the outcast. And he and I just loved working together, so it just kept happening, and our relationship is completely bound up with our work. We enjoy each other's art.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


We took Beowulf, the epic poem in Old English, and put it right together with John Gardner's contemporary retelling. If you bring it into today, we really feel that it has something very fresh to say now.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


What I don't have in theater is editing.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


When I was thinking about The Lion King, I said, we have to do what theater does best. What theater does best is to be abstract and not to do literal reality.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


You know, I went to Oberlin. At that time, grades were - you elected to have them or not. It was all of that era where grades were out the window. But I did very well in school. I didn't really study the arts; I practiced the arts.
Quotation of Julie Taymor


You program music with an image and then people are desensitized.
Quotation of Julie Taymor
