The rehearsals of Keersmaeker are going very well! For the moment it seems that I am the second cast of the piece Die Grosse Fuge, that we just finished learning the whole piece last Friday. The performances will be in Palais Garnier from 26th April to 12th May. I am very excited to be back on that stage again soon!
Apart from that I have a lot of different new projects coming up for this summer. Those are projects that require so much time and energy. I keep challenging myself!
When we are busy the key is rest. For the mind, rest safes us from a burn-out and for the body, from overtraining. In the past few months, I learned a lot about myself, about my weaknesses. So now, I promise myself, that I will learn from my mistakes and will never make them again. I have to learn to say no, to focus on achieving my goals, to rest, to have friends outside so that I have a nice talk to them about my week of work….. etc.
Spring is finally here in Paris apparently, we had a very sunny week. Clouds come back ONLY during my day-offs of course…… I wanted to go out to Notre Dame and see the beautiful cherry blossoms under sunlight and blue sky, but they are still beautiful under a cloudy weather.
