Last night in Paris
29 May – 2.30am – my last night in Paris! Just got in from the opening of France-South Africa Season gala event [Soirée de gala Saison sud-africaine en France] – was great!
They lit up Eiffel Tower in colours of SA flag [see link below]…it was beautiful…and realized later how big a thing that is! Not just because of the tower’s height, but symbolically, its huge! [e.g can’t foresee that happening with say…Statue of Liberty]…and also in terms of acknowledgement of SA, and bilateral relationships etc.
Opened with a Robin Orlin / Moving Into dance Mophatong Company performance: ‘Beauty remained for just a moment then returned gently to her starting position’ and Phuzekhemisi performance
