Anca Hanu: Dear Matei, The Nurse asks you: how many theatre productions did you die in, including this one?

Matei Rotaru: According to the latest calculations... it seems I have forgotten to keep track... Basically, this is the last in a series of productions in which I die at the end.

A.H.: Are you happy to be alive?

M.R.: Yes, because only after you have died do you realize how beautiful life is... And you can cherish that.
