Nureyev's Project Endorsed By The International Dance Council
Ramon Reis & Una St Tropez
On Tuesday, January 15th the Press was invited to the Metropole Hotel for the unveiling of the project « Dialogue with Nureyev », the brainchild of dancer and choreographer Ramon Reiss and painter Una St Tropez. « Nureyev talks and I paint » says the painter, while adding that she wants us to discover the man behind the artist, penetrate his inner life and making him vibrate once more.
It was announced that the project has the support of HSBC Bank, as well as the endorsement of the International Dance Council (CID) the official umbrella organization for all forms of dance over the world, represented by its President Prof. Alkis Raftis and Aelita Kondratova, Vice President of the Saint-Petersburg Section and Curator of educational and cultural programs. It is a fortuitous coincidence that at the same time this project marks the 20th anniversary of the disappearance of Nureyev the CID will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of its creation.
