Ma grandmère d’Arménie (Michel de Maule, 2015) is the title of Anny Romand’s touching book about her ancestors’ genocide by the Turks during the years 1915-18. A genocide that the Turkish government still hasn’t acknowledged and which thus weighs heavily on the nation’s shoulders. This is my interview with the author and granddaughter.
The spectacular duo at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris between Blanca Li and Maria Alexandrova was called Déesses&Démones (goddesses and demons). After having enjoyed that dance, I enjoyed the Swedish choreographer, Mats Ek’s, last performance From Black to Blue, as he’s retiring and with him his works.
