That is, the mistake is the same ... but he understands that, for example, for the first student it's his strong point, he focuses on it and gets stuck and needs to move in another direction and try something different. Therefore, he scolds him. And he praises the other, because he has just begun to do this, and if you scold him, rap him on the knuckles, as it were, he'll stop trying.
That's his system. On the one hand, it might seem unfair, but in fact he's a very good teacher.
And now, when I put a play on, I always want to do it in a different way. Because you have to use different "keys" to open up different playwrights, like, Shakespeare and Tufan Minnullin [Tatar playwright], for example.
Often you can judge the talent of a director, so to speak, right away. For a lot of them, they treat Molière, Shakespeare, or whatever Joe Schmo modern playwright all the same. But for me, these are ... well, completely different representations, different mentalities, different languages, so we have to do them differently.
I start with the authors, go through all their work.
Take Shakespeare for example, again. You could set Hamlet in a garbage can, and for me, that would be very strange. I'm not sure I could go along with that. Even though I'm an open person in this regard ... I'm all for new readings.
