For me a lively audience is one that unites future and past in the present. Children bring with them a presentiment of what they will become, grown-ups carry the child within them, the child they once were.
In such a lively audience, I care most about the youngest ones. They haven’t made many experiences yet and should be accompanied carefully because of that.
With pleasure, I give my attention also to the older children and the grown-ups. As role models, they carry responsibility, have a great knowledge and their life experience deserves respect.
