We had a great time together. Sunny and rainy, windy and calm, but mostly Scottish-rainy and Scottish-windy. We’ve been together for 3 weeks, but now, I’m sorry, I should leave. It’s 3.30 a.m., clear calm night-morning. My suitcase, backpack and a bag… How will I carry all of this?! What was I thinking about buying […]Read More Goodbye, Edinburgh!
It’s the end of August but here, in Edinburgh it feels like Belarusian October! I’m cold everywhere: at school, in coffe shop, on performance, at home… I’m cold at any time, whatever it’s morning, afternoon or evening… Because it’s cold 🙂 October.. The weather is so crazy… The funny thing is that in the morning […]Read More October, leave me, please!!!
Strange deep psychological hard… Unusual. The war, community and individual. Individual in community. Rules following, commands, subordination, submission, dependence… All time in tension, on stress. How 1 wall, which is the only decoration, non-moving faces (almost all the time) keep attention of all the audience? Hard. Heavy. Odd. Edinburgh Playhouse. Could even say all the […]Read More ‘I AM’ by MAU Ballet. New Zeland
Something suddenly realised.. Something important… Which helps not to give up. Here it is. The f*cking life is about maiking choices. Going upper means making more choices, which are more serious and difficult to make, which means they’re more important. To be strong, not to put off, to be brave being responsible for your own […]Read More Life full of choices
Inala. It’s probably the best performance I’ve even seen. Clean voices of African choir, so clean that I couldn’t believe it’s not a recording… Couldn’t believe it’s real. The project is special and original by definition.. Zulu ballet itself is an experiment, mind-blowing mixture of music, African singing and dance. The idea of creating the […]Read More Inala
What on earth is going on? I got news from my mom yesterday and.. Some of them are dreadful. My godfather is ill. He has a cancer. Don’t really know which type of cancer he has. But what’s the point? He’s ill. The illness is serious and who knows what will be at the end.. […]Read More Cancer. I wonder it wasn’t so wide-spread..
Jazzy afternoon with Dick Lee on clarinet and Brian Kellock on piano. Located in a well tiny theatre-like venue deeply inside Italian restaurant Valvona & Crolla, the concert didn’t even pretend to be a concert. Relaxing homey atmosphere created a feeling of being on a meeting with best friends, all jazz experts, but still wondering […]Read More Dick Lee and Brian Kellock: Jazz Notes
Another busy day here that’s why it’s lovely that’s why I’m tired now 🙂 first of all I’d like to tell you I forgot the time when I slept enough… You see, a problem there… I didn’t sleep enough before my holidays because I needed to work 8 hours a day and wanted to do […]Read More My Edinburgh activities: busy, moving, non-stopping
Loads activities => emotions from yesterday. So last afternoon I visited a jazz concert by Dick Lee and Brian kellock: jazz notes. It was dead good. And in the evening I took part in traditional Scottish dancing class. But… Unfortunately I can’t write about this two things cos I have a homework from school. Yes, […]Read More The Dead Pony Society. Comedy
Honestly lots of new info. The city is really nice, seemed to me at the beginning. Now I think it’s quite crazy. Edinburgh international festival, Fridge festival, Music festival is hosted there. You see.. Busy, noisy, full of energy, crowded – it’s today’s Edinburgh… What do I do? Well.. I’m kind of lost here.. Try […]Read More Hello from Edinburgh!)
