Ashes in Paris!

Surrounded by a team of exquisite dancers and musicians, I am very proud to be part of this production! After an intense period of rehearsing and try-outs in Belgium and Villeneuve d'Ascq, the time has finally arrived to share Ashes with the public. Now we return to France. In the middle of the vibrant Parisian life, on the lovely Montmartre, we will be performing in Théâtre de la Ville - Théâtre des Abbesses. Naturally, afterwards, I will be enjoying the unique vibes around this well-hidden theatre!

All the wonderful people that made this production possible, can be found at the end of this post. Paris, here we come!
