“Citizens, the slavery of women was not historically customary to Georgia… Spousal relationship of Georgian people was always of friendly nature. This is proved, if not by the contemporary life, by our ancient language which called such a relationship the pulling of a yoke. Public activity was not strange to Georgian women and at the times when our brave fathers were busy sharpening their swords to repel enemy our mothers took care of civil life. They were engaged in spreading literacy and religion, curing diseases, building cathedrals, castles and fortresses that were ruined by enemies, and in many other activities."

Nato Gabunia – Tsagareli - Actress


“I had many good times on the stage and bad times too. Theatre was everything for me and still remains to be such… Perhaps I am not worth of the stage but the stage means everything to me. My family, my Asiko, my praying house and so on and so forth… The god is one who I deeply trust as the god but I also believe that there are gods on the earth too, who penetrate hearts of humans, understand their sorrow and undertake to cure it. Here, on the earth, I have my gods who give me - the weakened, tortured feeble person – the power to live.”
