A thousand orchids and Swan Lake…

Such sunny weather in Paris this week. It’s a very calm week for me, not much work from business school, and no rehearsals in the afternoon. But I don’t know why I am feeling a little under pressure and tired. After working a little…

Sunday with sunlights and good talks~

One day before the Générale of our mixed program Cherkaoui/Goecke/Lidberg. I had one day to stay away from my studies which are getting a little intense and ballet. Today’s weather was great, we havent seen Paris this sunny since quite a long time. Going…

Archiving memories, in the form of an unsent letter.

A letter to Pauline. Behind this unsent letter is a painful memory. Memory of a difficult time that made Chun overcome his fears, that made him learn and face his weakness seriously and bravely. This letter was never meant to be sent to Pauline,…

Photos taken in Tai Kwun, Hong Kong

Chun was still in Hong Kong only two weeks ago…… his hometown, a place that is home for him but that doesn’t feel like home anymore. Each time he sees impressive changes in the city: New shops, new buildings, new metro lines and stations……..

Hot bath thoughts…

Remembering the time when we would be fascinated by the simple effect of salt crystals melting into water… Time goes by and a year later, we would not bother giving it a glance……. Do fascinations, passions and wonders in life eventually fade, taken for…

Exhibition Japonisme/Ponti, and Les Troyens at Opera Bastille

Home sweet home ~ Photos of La Dame aux Camélias……

Jean-Michel Basquiat / Egon Schiele @Fondation Louis Vuitton

I think Chun has never spent so much time in a single exhibition…. He arrived at 9am at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, a beautiful building by the architect Frank Gehry, and at noon, he had lunch appointment, so he had to leave, but he…

Concert in the Church of Madeleine~

The “La Dame aux Camélias” group of dancers is now on a short holiday of 5 days before finishing the last two performances of the series on 2nd and 3rd January. Chun takes this occasion to finish his homework, and to enjoy the beautiful…

Pointe shoes training and sewing…

Pointes shoes, the ultimate symbol and cliché of classical ballet and reserved for female ballerinas, is often a fascinating technique and savoir-faire. Not only is the technique of going on pointe extremely painful and difficult, choosing the right pointe shoes, learning this technique correctly,…

Déjeuner at Akrame Paris

A friend asked Chun to meet at Fauchon shop at Madeleine church today. Chun is on a day-off, before attacking the intense weekend with four performances of La Dame aux Camélias in 3 days! He thought, “lunch at Fauchon? interesting. I’ve always seen Fauchon corners…
