With a nod to golden-age artists from Fred Astaire to Charlie Chaplin Athletics Yonder Alonso Jersey , French choreographer Philippe Decouflé has brought a musical extravaganza to London inspired by the soul-selling diabolical story of Faust.
Best known for his work with Cirque du Soleil and for staging the ceremonies at the Albertville Olympics of 1992, Decouflé's vibrant and eclectic style is reflected in his latest show Contact.
"It's a very free adaptation of Faust but it's also a variation on musical comedy - a homage to a genre that is fun in the noble sense of the word," the indefatigable 53-year-old told AFP.
"It's a show I love and which has been very complicated to stage. I put a lot into it. It appeals to all my senses and it has taken a long time," he said, explaining the two years of preparations.
Contact premiered in Paris in January and has already traveled to Belgium and Germany.
A tour stop in Japan is planned for next year.
The bewildering mix of styles in this rock opera ballet is heavily inspired by the late German dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch's famous Kontakthof, which also gave Decouflé the idea for the name.
There are elements of the musical West Side Story and Michael Jackson's Thriller alongside tributes to classic Hollywood musical comedy.
The Faust myth tells the story of a frustrated man who enters a pact with the devil to fulfil his desires.
PARIS Athletics Walt Weiss Jersey , May 22 (Xinhua) -- French Open defending champion Maria Sharapova told press here on Friday that she's happy to see other players get married or have a baby but wanted to stay focus on tennis as it comes to herself.
The world No. 2, who came to Paris with a clay title won in Rome last week, has collected all four Grand Slam trophies since she claimed the maiden victory in 2004 in Wimbledon as a 17-year- old, including twice in Roland Garros, in 2012 and 2014.
Talking about on-court life and off-court happiness, the 28- year-old Russian said: "We are athletes and we are here to do our jobs. We sometimes forget that tennis is quite a short period of our lives Athletics Trevor Plouffe Jersey , and especially for women.
"Maybe men last a little bit longer. For a woman that wants to have children and a family, it can be quite tough to prolong your career," she said.
Just 40 days ago, world No. 3 men's singles player Andy Murray got married with his long-time girlfriend, and the top seed here, Novak Djokovic became a dad last fall as his wife gave birth to a baby.
"It's been great to see so many more family men on the tour. That's been nice Athletics Tony Phillips Jersey ," commented Sharapova. "But I'm not sure I like to use the word balance, because when you try to balance things out you're only just good at a couple of things."
"I want to be great at one thing. I know it's sometimes impossible to be great at ten things. If I try to be great at ten other sports maybe I would be so-so.
"I have chosen a sport that I could evolve in and be great at. I have been very committed to my sport and trying to be the best I can be at it. When I have the time to enjoy my life and to be happy away from the court," she said.
Sharapova starts her defending campaign against Estonia's Kaia Kanepi in the French Open, which gets underway on Sunday.
So when you hear the term “stone veneer,” you may ask if the product is similar to dental veneers.
Believe it or not, you wouldn’t be far off. In our mouths Athletics Terry Steinbach Jersey , veneers coat our teeth to replicate the look of a healthy, beautiful and natural smile. Stone veneers operate on the same principle. They achieve the same look, texture, colour and shape as natural stone.
The key difference? Stone veneers give homes all the benefits of real stone – but at a fraction of the price.
Faux Stones are comprised of Portland cement, some lightweight real stone elements, iron oxide pigments Athletics Stephen Vogt Jersey , water repellents and various polymers. If that sounds like wall stone jargon to you, the simpler way to understand stone veneers is that they’re comprised of various components that achieve the look of natural stone and are designed to withstand the elements.
The benefits of manufactured stones
Manufactured stones replicate virtually any type of stone wall you can imagine, including ledge stone, castle stone, limestone and other types of wall stone. This popular new trend is also cost-effective both directly and indirectly. In the strictest sense, the thinner Athletics Sonny Gray Jersey , lighter materials in stone veneers make the product less expensive than natural stone.
Indirectly, because of their lightweight composition, faux stones don’t take the same toll on a household that real wall stone does. They are light enough that they can be easily installed in virtually any interior stone or exterior stone application. Moreover, they don’t require expensive extensions or reinforcements to a house’s foundation.
Because of their more convenient design, manufactured stone are also significantly easier to transport than natural stone. It’s no wonder we’re seeing them pop up everywhere, including fashion-forward cities like Toronto Athletics Sean Doolittle Jersey , Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Barrie, Kingston, Niagara Falls and Ottawa.
Indoor and outdoor uses
Faux stones users, whether they’re building a home Athletics Santiago Casilla Jersey , selling one or buying one, are usually ahead of the curve in terms of home design trends. It’s thus no wonder that they’ve found so many different uses for stone veneers already.
For example, interior stone veneers are used in fireplaces, stairways, wine cellars, bars and Athletics Rollie Fingers Jersey , of courses, kitchen islands, a key piece of any “dream home.”
Exterior stone veneers can accentuate gardens, sculpting a natural look at an affordable price. They can also jazz up patios and grill areas, giving home owners the “place to be” around the neighbourhood in the summertime.
