  • I like Island of my dreams

    03 March 2016

    Haven't written anything here in 2015. My closest friends heard these words : "Can't wait december 31st, getting rid of that year." Haven't written anything. 2015. Facts, echoes, mysteries. What you know. What you left unsaid. What you can't explain....

  • G like Glimpse through the labyrinth of art & time

    27 September 2014

    Metamorphosis. You can't create yourself, you just experiment your own metamorphosis. The essence was written at the beginning, very early, very clearly, very quickly. Afterwards, life is having fun... • I have created this "Metamorphosis" project - 14...

  • F like Frozen time in Venice, until next time

    01 May 2014 ( #Images, #Illuminations, #Rendez-vous )

    Venice. Venezia. It's been a while. And then, a theatre. A man. A rendez-vous. Michael Nyman at La Fenice. Like if I needed a reason to go back to Venice. One month ago, and I am not sure I really came back. Life in Venice... •

  • A like Angelskar, time after time

    02 June 2012 ( #Music, #Faces, #Images, #Rendez-vous )

    Pal Angelskar. Actually, you should write his name like this : Pål Angelskår It's not - well, not only - because there is an angel in his name. I followed him. Because Pal is an über-talented songwriter and composer. And a great singer ; great voice,...

  • H comme Hajimete

    13 May 2010 ( #history, #Words, #Unfinished, #Faces )

    Les étrangers traduisent le mot japonais "Hajimete" par "enchanté" ou "nice to meet you". C'est inexact. Les Japonais sont beaucoup trop précis, subtils et civilisés pour dire à un inconnu "enchanté", ce serait exagéré. Comment pourrait-on être sincèrement...

    27 September 2014

    Je l'aimais... ... Prononcer ces mots avec le même chagrin. Prononcer ces mots trop souvent, ces derniers mois. Prononcer ces mots là-aussi, sans trembler, en souriant, dire à un homme bien en face, les yeux plantés dans ses yeux clairs, après une belle...

  • B like Beyond time, woman to woman

    24 February 2014 ( #Images, #Dance )

    About being hungry. I heard dancers say these words, often : "I am hungry". A feroce appetite for work, excellence and new challenges. Appetite for dancing, acting, and stage. And here I was, back to the Opera de Paris, with a fierce appetite. Women's...

    Décider de tout éteindre. Communiquer par la parole. Ou le silence. Le rythme de la conversation. Laisser faire la lumière. Ecrire, à quatre mains, la recette d'un après-midi tranquille. Prendre du temps, beaucoup de temps, une demi-douzaine d'heures,...
