Habima to Be Owned by Tel Aviv Municipality Following Financial Crisis

"Come to promised cast brought to you on t. v. One the voice of the city that this week announced that it is taking ownership of the national theatre habima and in so doing taking on one hundred million shekels in debt that habima has run up over the past years and in doing all this bringing to a happy conclusion a crisis that we first became aware of a year and a half ago in november twenty nineteen when a man named core case safron sued demanding that the company liquidated its assets and use the proceeds to pay the four million. It owed him for telemarketing services provided to habima by his company. Power dialing at the time the press made saffron out to be a grinch like figure shutting down the world's oldest hebrew theatre for something as unexhausted money filthy lucre. But the fact is you have to do a lot of power dialing. Run up a tab of four million shekels and it's like the old saying goes don't the cold call if you ain't got the windfall. It's the saying. I've heard a lot of people say that anyway. During the hearing it came out that the national theatre was much worse debt than anyone knew so much that that it was like an iceberg and the four million telemarketing chuckles. Were only the small little point. You see above the waterline. Which debt of course only got lots worse during the pandemic and of course the national government has an approved a budget since march twenty eighteen. Meaning that it would be complicated. And maybe even impossible for the treasury and ministry of culture in jerusalem to bail out the theater even if they were of a mind to do it and finally tel aviv mayor room the stepped up and negotiated a deal whereby the theater would become a municipal corporation like the art museum and the land of israel museum in the cinematheque and the camera theater. The director general of habima. A man named noam semel who was hired just over a year ago to steer the national theatre through its financial crisis said quote the tel aviv. Municipality is the mother and father that the bima has never had and quote

An Indigenous Mixtape from Lima, Peru

"Basically this week's episode is a catch wa language mix tape and this mix tape starts with track. One introducing librado. Yeah that's clearly now my voice. I'm getting mixed eight hosting help from my friend. Dj just john. Okay here we go now. That's lebron connie emceeing at the national theatre here in lima. This past february he's rapping in a mix of spanish and catch wa if you haven't heard of catch wa that's kind of the point. It's the most widely spoken indigenous language and latin america about ten million people speak it and liberal bringing it to people in a whole new way. His mc name librado. Connie means i am a free man and a call and response you hear throughout his concerts is catch wa is resistance. I met librado while in lima peru. And i was in lima on this. Totally non far-flung gig filming young rappers and beat makers which have been doing on and off for the past seven years all over the world priscilla. Anyway i've always been interested in ways. Music leads to cultural mashups like catch one hip hop and how that intersects with identity and the way people feel about themselves and when it comes to documenting hip hop it's always a cool story when different languages and traditions get mixed into the music but it's kind of hard to tell what that mixing means. What does it mean. When someone is wrapping in their ancestral language does that relate to a language living or dying and house. All that culturally significant politically significant. When does it lead to change on. Its face it might seem like the fight for catch. Wise is about lima's pride in their past and that's true but there's another crucial thing at stake here. It's the ability for indian culture to survive and to evolve into the future so to get the significance of what liberals doing we need to start with some background on ketchaoua. But you don't hear much catch. What outside of the countryside in peru ever since colonisation spanish has been the dominant language of government. Business education. Really life in general. And there's of course all kinds of cultural implications with that as well in the broncos music though you don't hear any of that higher he swapping between languages constantly and letting catch while on hooks his call and responses. He's young but he's like a classic ninety s hip hop head and when we hung out. He seemed really comfortable in his skin and sincere about everything. Oh and heads up. We were talking spanish most of this interview. So you'll hear some overdub. English shorter track to deepen the andean bronx. This is teach them what either made from purple corn. It's very delicious from corn. You can even make teacher. They hold a credible. We're walking down along. Walk walking for a little bit. We are eating a kind of Proven popcorn and we're drinking a purple corn based drink. Ginger morava balmy out here. It's not that hot again. Noisy sirens is a cultural hub for peruvians. It's like they're la and new york matching into one about ten million people live here and the population's growing we're walking through downtown. Lima librado told me that when he went to new york to perform for the first time in two thousand eighteen a lot of what he saw reminded him of home unusual ways. You told the crowd that he realized he was like a rapper from the indian. Bronx they loved it. You know. he's a rapper. So he's good with metaphor and there's something very hip hop about his light experience. He grew up in a world that was hostile towards identity specifically his indian catch. Wasp became identity twenty mike cornell so librado wrapping and catch wa flowed great to my ear as someone who didn't have a lot of linguistic and cultural context. It's just good sound but sometimes locals were shocked to hear the language mixed into hip hop track three welcome to the donkey belly sky. And what are those. Locals is my friend oscar durand he's producing and basically co hosting this episode with me. Oscar grew up in lima in the eighties. And i left peru in two thousand two to study and live abroad as a photo journalist. The first time that occurred without those music. I was surprised you know he was not the first time i catch wa. I heard it when i was in crew. Obviously but it was the first time that i hear someone rapping ikeja and he was a new context for language at the energy. So i knew that. I had to meet this guy told me the story man. I wasn't there so you know. I already heard about him. So i was really curious about his because as a journalist i have my my antennas. You always scanning for interesting stories to last time when i was visiting peru i was there for work. I send a message of media and she told me. have this concert. why don't you come. I couldn't make it but him and his band were playing this rehearsal space so i just went and then we start chatting and it was just such great energy because i felt like i knew these guys forever and then they start playing and it was just the most amazing experiences having peru because he had this concert just for myself. But what was it about him that shocked locals. I mean there's great musicians in peru for sure. So what was it about librado. That made him stand out. Well its first surprising to catch on. Because when i was growing up catcher was really around me in school. Remember catcher being mentioned in our history class when we were talking about the inca empire our glory days but those days are long gone and many people would not associate catcher with innovation or success.

"Lost friday when i gave a talk here to the talk was finished. People left tie went to the airports. Go to thailand and just came back this afternoon. I sound which my trips between these friday night talks but the trip over to thailand was as part of the waste sack sermonise ways is one day of the year in my the full moon nights of my which happens to be tonight in the sky. You see the full moon and his mocks birth enlightenment. Final passing away voters a huge so many throughout the world and being popular mankind. Get invited and have to go to many places to celebrate many ways. Sex and part of the seventies was a huge seventy in bangkok. Every last year was in a hanoi. This year in bangkok united nations-sponsored way sack ceremony. An one so. I was over there representing australia. And it was very inspiring to not just have ceremonies with many of the most senior and powerful monks and scholars announce but also to have the opportunity to use his great buddhist teaching to solve some of the bigger problems of the world. So we talked about how we can use what is not just to help a human being achieved more peace in their life no interest in the individual and avoid sometimes saying the put us image just about the individual how you can really happier more peaceful more free but also to make use of these put his teachings in the international arena so we did talk about things like the global economic crisis. And those of you who think that these conferences now have no effect her soon as we finished our three day conference the share market rose throughout the world love. The evidence is out there. We're told about the political crisis in the world and look the last few days. Thailand has been peaceful again so maybe we should take responsibility for these things but one thing which we did discuss which is going to be. The topic of this talk tonight is not only in the individual theater. What also in the national theaters of our world. How much we underestimate the power of goodness. It's not hard power. It's not soft power. It's how of ethics and virtue and goodness which has a huge effect on this planet. Everybody keeps on say the reason for the current economic crisis which is about to hear is because of our conference. Of course. The reason why is about to heal. Africa is because the problem was because of access greed. Not looking at the proper things in life. I mean how much money to people need to be happy and well you want to know how much money a person needs to be really happy. Go look at me or the monk sitting next to me. We've got absolutely nothing and we're very happy. It's a great symbol like among all none of what is what is non one of the most important parts of them one. We've few possessions. We rely that competence. People have all sorts of stuff. You know all sorts of gifts prime minister of thailand. Deputy prime minister this great person network. They've they've only source of gifts. But what you do some mark when you receive all these things you say thank you very much and give it to somebody else so i never any of that stuff home with me because my home in my heart is peaceful and free. I don't want clot it up and say way that when you get a gift what a wonderful thing it is somebody gives you a gift very kind of you. Love happiness when they give you something. So what do you do next. You give it to someone else and they get a lot of happiness and they give it to someone else. Please don't store possessions this. Pass it around like passing the paso and eventually working to somebody who really needs an appreciate it. Then they can keep here. What a wonderful thing. It is not to keep things but to be part of a static but it's this process is dynamic active giving and receiving enjoying the gifts and enjoy the process of giving an a passing it to someone else impossible to someone else in passing it to someone else so one gift keeps going round and round and round making many many people happy and eventually and it's happened to me and the gift i gave someone they say we've got a president for you are temper this a gift like if someone else about three weeks ago this happened see as the law of power walk out cubs literally but we all know that that sort of agreed thing is this you get a gift you wanna keep it you have money you think it's yours you have a house you don't share it what things for any way they are for sharing for enjoying not just by yourself. It's not very nice enjoying things by yourself. in fact it's almost impossible to enjoy it by yourself for sharing it. It's a wonderful thing to you. Get much more happiness that way as they say in business you get far more bang for your bucks when you share your box. So you'll know that greed is a why are people so just greedy and why are people just like in politics. We also talked about the political problems in the world. Why people angry. What was the point of getting anxious. Somebody does that help at all

Unreserved goes to the imagineNATIVE Festival virtually

"For me imaginative has always been a place to share stories through video audio, digital interactive, and also through exhibitions and visual arts because I, think there's really a quite a unique way that indigenous artists are telling stories and we are really just showcasing the multitude of these artists and all of the voices however nuance they are from many different nations. Sneaky, little the artistic director of imagine native describing what the festival looks like usually. But things are a lot different this year. Like most festivals, the covid nineteen pandemic has forced things to move online. There's also new faces at the helm. The new executive director, Naomi Johnson happens to be my sister full disclosure. But it's also Nikki. Little's first. Hear is artistic director. Though things are different little hopes. Attendees still feel that festival experience.

So either Susan Blight Adam on Darlene upon our myself will be hosting a feature focus or short program Focus, which is a twenty to thirty minute conversation with directors from from the films from the official programming. So exciting people are bringing. Some of the cast, some of producers and themselves to talk about the work, and then each nightly usually has an event. So definitely look out for those and some of the free programming are the exhibitions, the digital interactive and the audio works. So those are those are at People's leisure to see can meander around and connect to those different spaces. That's Nikki little the artistic director of imaginative. You'll hear more from her a little later on in the show.

He is more than one hundred film television and stage credits, and he played memorable roles like Davis on Corner Gas Daniel Della of sixty, and he is the voice of Grandpa, nat on Molly of Denali. Welcome to the show learn and congratulations. Thank you very much and congratulations to you fail, and now for listeners we should mention we do know each other we've been on stage together.

So this award the the argue award since affectionately known, it's been given to performers Michael Gray is like Michelle thrush like ten Sukarno. So, how do you feel about taking home the award this year it's a great great honor I knew Avi I've got to work with. A few times and left an indelible mark in my life and he he was one of my mentors. So is lucky to call him a friend mentor. He's He's pretty special human being yeah. I had the chance to work with him a little bit and he was he was quite a force who's quite a force. So I imagine again, you know this, this award is very personal because as you mentioned, he was a mentor and a friend to you. And you guys did work on a number of projects together. You know some of your earliest work was alongside Augie. But for people who might not know who he was, who was he too you? Well, he was a prolific stage actor. He's one of the first classically trained theater native theater actors in Canada. So you know he's he set the bar high right off the bat he went to National Theatre School, and then he moved onto Stratford as well, which is incredible place to be. And in nineteen sixty, four, him being the first native person to be on that stage is is pretty incredible. And Role in the George Regas. Ecstasy of the Joe. When he played the young fireball Jamie Paul which I think every almost every native actor has done that play in one shape or another. Always been, you know setting the bar quite high. One of the films that you start in alongside Augie was to come see the last warrior and the movie is the story of the Shawnee leader and you played his brother loud noise, which is a you know he's a pretty iconic person in history, but also a really meaty role to play. So let's take a listen to the scene where your character loud noise believes he is dying. To search die. Was More hotton inside. Slave lies in. Lust. You're in ski. Misery is not their fault. Zone. Cropped. Can Spirit Foster own spiritual ways. Voice. I was. Be My message. Woke store. That was a little bit from the film to come see the last warrior. So the film came out in Nineteen ninety-five and our guest today learn cardinale starred in it. So, what's it like to listen back to old clips like that Lord I, wonder who that flute player was. Awesome Yeah, it's interesting. Always hearing it going Oh, I could have done or I should have done but. I remember that scene because it was one of the funders scenes to do in the whole in the whole movie. But I. I was Kinda Green when I when I did that role. So you know I always going full out every time. And Way. We shot that particular scene is that we started on the people above me. My brother and sister, and so I was off camera giving them the lines and I went out every single time for that for them off camera, and then she turns to me and she goes. You might want to save some of that for yourself. Oh Yeah I. Guess she goes. Yeah. I. I appreciate it but I don't need all that. I made her cry, which was my thing I just wanted to order. So she could get to the emotion that she needed and she was crying and stuff every time we did it

"Former FDA FDA commissioner Dr Scott Gottlieb said there's still more to be learned, though about how long immunity lasts. It's probably the case that you're going to have a period of immunity that last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, it's going to be highly variable. Some people will have less immunity. Some people have slightly more, but it's good news that they're able to document that people. I'll have really sterile immunity. They're not going to get re infected for at least three months, probably longer than that, after infection.

Top Stories From The Balkans

"We're going to get around above stories making news in the Balkans now I'm joined to buy our correspondence in the region at guide to Lauraingraham. Good afternoon to you. You are in the Slovenian capital. What is happening there? While we're opening up a bet here, marcus in fact, as Britain is going in the direction of putting arrivals and quarantine fourteen days, which is caused a great deal of Cathal over there. I'm here in Slovenia it's exactly the opposite. The country's just opened up. To arrivals from fourteen other European countries, and that's ranging from Switzerland to Iceland and Germany the Baltics, and that's in addition to its neighbours, Croatia Hungary and Austria. Restrictions on rivals from those places had already been lifted Italy those going to have to wait for a little while, but probably for about a week longer, and it's very bad news coming from north Macedonia Marcus, it's a compulsory fourteen day quarantine arriving from that, and that's because of a recent increase in a number of covid nineteen cases. Luckily I'm not coming from us. Part of the world's continuing to the neighboring country Croatia. What's making headlines over there now? We'd like railway journey Sony Marcus on Monocle, twenty, four and I. This is warm, which sounds to me? Like a railway journey that that I'd like to make, and it's one from the Czech Republic through to the Croatian coast, and this is being run by the Czech railway operator regular I think you pronounce it regular jet. Should we go with that? And they are running trains that I think we'll go with that the plan anyway as whatever they could they. However you pronounce that they're going to be running night. Trains from the Czech Republic from Prague directly through to the Croatian coast to be precise, the city of the reactor, which is actually one of the European capitals of culture this year, and from they'll be able to get connections to any of your coastal destinations, and this is a big deal. It's a big. Big Deal for people in the Czech Republic because eight hundred thousand of them every year. Go on holiday in Croatia apparently, the the advertising in in the Czech. Republic refers to Croatia as aw coast so quite proprietorial about it. They are number seven in terms of tourist arrivals in Croatia, so it's not an exaggeration, really but it's also a big deal for Croatia. Because twenty percent of their GDP is generated by tourism I'm said they're going to have to. Find ways of getting people from places like the Czech Republic that key tourism markets. If that is salvage any kind of a summer season at all, and this is exactly the when people are talking about corona corridors between countries which have low infection rates of which. Croatia and the Czech Republic A to well I think that A. Colorado, because let's face it this. This trains conjugate three tunnels Marcus that raw appeals to me I in terms of both an elegant solution and the word play, and the fact that it'll. Be a very beautiful train journey. If you can see if it's not to. Dock sounds very promising. Let's continue our tour next to L.. The obeyed and authorities are facing legal action.

After years of protest in the middle of the night, the early hours of a Sunday morning the authorities just moved in and knocked down the National Theatre. More or less said it's done now. Everybody move on well surprise prize. Everybody hasn't moved on. There's a group which call themselves the Alliance for the protection of the National Theatre well. Maybe they should think about changing their name been the not changing their caused that. filing legal action against a number of municipal officials who were involved with voting to demolish the theater, the also again for the the head of the National Inspectorate for the protection of territory, and it's also been going for civil engineer who said that the the building was not safe, and therefore should be demolished as it's already got one hundred thousand signatures from.

Travel to Costa Rica

"To the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen before we get into this week's episode. I do want to say something about the corona virus epidemic. Which is what's going on as I record this. I also put this in the amateur traveler facebook group but I know that. Not all of your in there. I want you to know what my plan is. So many of you I am sheltering in place and I am not traveling because it's the right thing to do these days but I won't be blogging and podcasting about coveted Nineteen Ama- traveler. I'm not a medical expert. You don't need my opinion. We did do one episode of this week and travel. Because it's news but that's really all I'm going to do about this and I'm really of the opinion that this will get better. I don't know how long but sometime we will get back to work. And things will return to normal and travel will return to normal whatever normal looks like and so. I'm going to be looking ahead. I'm going to be helping you dream of better days. I know for some of you. That's not what you're looking for now. If you unsubscribe because this isn't the right time for you to be thinking about travel no problem. I understand but that's what we're going to be doing here and I just didn't want to catch you by surprise it's not that I'm totally clueless about what's going on that being said. Let's talk about Costa Rica. I'd like to welcome the show. Sam and Jason. From my ten feet dot com who've come talk to us about Costa Rica Salmon and Jason. Welcome to the show. Hello Chris Thank you for having us and Salmon Jason our friends. I think we met in Philippines on a press trip. I WANNA say ten years ago so I don't remember exactly when we met the first time but someone actually pitched me doing Costa Rica but two of the bloggers that I know. Who are the experts on? Costa Rica Are Salmon? Jason and they make a living basically from this and from helping people figure out what to do in Costa Rica's so let's start with the obvious. Why should someone go to Costa Rica? Costa Rica offers a lot of things to do for people who want to experience nature because Costa Rica's known as a very ECO friendly sustainable destination. It's very green country in every sense of that word yes exactly. They protect over twenty five percent of their land actually in so for anyone who wants to experience nature whether they love I watching or hiking or even a beach vacation to see a volcano experienced rainforest particularly has got it all in that sense and when it comes to countries in Central America Latin America is very safe. It's very popular for travelers in the US in now more in Europe and they're very friendly people in they're very welcoming so Costa Rica's even a destination for people who have never been outside traveled internationally because of the excellent. And what kind of are you going to recommend for someone who let's say it's their first time in Costa Rica? I most people they land in San Jose. International Airport in this is because this is the biggest international airport so they have more flights schedules. And then for the first time itinerary something I would really recommend is and then you go to Fortuna I in La. Fortuna is a city what they call northern lowlands and it is home to the. Arina volcano very close to lake are now which is the biggest man-made Lake in Costa Rica and also a lot of rainforest around and so a lot for tonight is known as the adventure capital of Costa. And you can do pretty much all the adventures you could once. They're so whitewater rafting canyoning zip-lining very popular hiking because of the rainforest is nature. There's a lot of wildlife can see a lot of birds monkeys and floss and it's a very good destination for families or for Solo travelers. Because you find everything from ten dollars. Abed a night till eight hundred dollars a night so you have super budget to the super luxury. We'll I in. This is what we did when we were in Costa Rica. The first time you didn't stop us in San Jose to do anything and that is pretty typical for Costa Rican itineraries. Well craze the reason why well Waco streak is. We don't do that well. Actually the government is trying to make the capital Prettier Bad the truth is that the traffic is terrible. Whenever you work the tourism industry you don't one on a generic going through San Jose because traffic jams are getting very bad. I believe that every single city on the world is having this problem so ideas or packages that you find like San Jose jewel probably stay one or two nights and then you might see one or two activities on the whole day and I will say the main reason is the traffic well and I was not surprised that you did not suggest that but I did want to point it out because somebody may be looking at an itinerary that somebody else creates for them and I wanted them to know the difference. Well now that you mentioned that this is actually something that I have noticed. Recently especially with people from Mexico. We got a lot of direct flights from Mexico in a notice that a lot of Mexicans in some sense they liked to stay in San Jose and they do a lot of one day. Trips is a lot of time on the buzz things that I don't actually recommend by opinion is a waste of time. I mean if you WANNA go to a game is not fun to spend four hours in the boss three hours and then go back for our sped. Believe it or not. This is a new thing we saw last year so meant that I was with a lot of people asking in. Actually we work with companies that do one day tours and many people they liked to be in bosses nowadays. I don't know whoever's listening to this podcast if you love to stay in a positive things house in one day trips but we don't recommend you to do that. The only things that I can think of that are close enough that I would do that. As there's a couple of the coffee plantations that I think are close and the river rafting in that area is fairly close to center. Say but I can't think of anything else that I really would want to see in Costa Rica. That San Jose would be where I would base myself. I think it's a lot of people they come to Experienced two major because it doesn't really sell itself it city city life economic in the city. They do have some nice cultural sites. They have a national theatre. They have a few really nice museums. But it's so small. It's not a big city so honestly see the city in a day and you can go to the neighborhood. That has a lot of good restaurants. You can get really good feel for in just one day and you don't need more than that really as if you were in New York City Madrid or not as much to do which I think is part of the reason why a lot of Timorese. Un in San Jose many sleeve. Right away yeah. I don't think I've been in San Jose. Costa Rica twice. So yeah so unless if you are dying like really really keen on experiencing city life you really don't have much time and something to mention Kristie. You mentioned the Quad River. Which is the most popular Whitewater rafting? The we have here in Costa Rica. A lot of people what they do is they take that tour as a way of transportation so for example. If you're planning to go to La Fortuna or you're planning to three Korean site so he's very very very common people book the Touri- Apple say but they ask to be drop off either for tuna or decree inside or they can bring you back to say but that will save you now your dad with many other attractions if you go to well. In this case the EPA quad as is closer Korean site. So from that location you can go through two different locations so the Costa Rican tourism industry. They know that so. What they do is is that it's transferred tour with four or five hours activities. Very bubbler any works very well here. Sure can do. The two are from laugher tuna or the Caribbean works. Both ways so very much like you can take a whole day for instead of traveling traveling in rafting

Ann Beattie Reads Mavis Gallant

"Hi Anne Hi Deborah so you mentioned for me that you read the story for the first time last summer how did you come across it then. I'm Visiting writer at the University of Virginia this fall and I have to give to public talks and I was pulling books off of my shelf just looking for different examples. Awesome things that I wanted to mention in those talks and I pulled down the best American short stories of the eighties which was edited by Shannon. Ravenhill and I thought. Oh if I've never heard of this Mavis askelon story. It just blew me away. I mean I just loved it I WANNA do nothing. But think about this Mavis gallant store. What was it about the story that surprised you well? I could answer that in a lot of ways. I think but the way that she moves through time you know. I think I think that the liberty she takes with those leaps and it's happening all over the place I mean she. She works like a dragonfly or something. She's really amazing. uh-huh had you been a fan of Mavis glance work before that I am but you know I don't know it anywhere near as well as I should I find such immediacy. See in her writing that I always like it. I don't know why I love this quite as much as I love it. I really found this an incredibly startling story the visuals I think part rid of it. The the imagery of it. Yeah the imagery of it It's it's set Or as written unpublished more than thirty years ago. I think on the eve. Steve of the nineteen ninety-one French presidential elections. Does it feel to you so it belongs to a different era or does it feel completely undated. I did I noticed the politics of it. You know but it. I didn't know that I didn't know what you just told me. And I think that's very interesting but it didn't really seem to be an an enormous factor except to make this very believable in terms of the kind of conversation that was held. And you know the way galant tells you people's opinions the we'll we'll talk some more after the story and now here's an beady Reading Day Day by Mavis Gallant Day. Pascal Breuer a is fourteen now he used to attend a lycee but after his parents found out about the dealers in the street outside the gates they changed to a private school here. The situation is about the same but he hasn't said so he does not want to be removed again. This time perhaps perhaps to a boarding establishment away from Paris with nothing decent to eat and lights out at ten. He would not describe himself as contriving or secretive. He tries to avoid drawing attention to the responsibility clause in the treaty that governs peace between generations like his father the magistrate he will offer neutrality before launching into descend. I'm ready to admit he will begin or I don't want to take over the whole conversation. Sometimes the sentence comes to nothing like his father. He lets his eyelids. Droop tries to speak it lightly and slowly. The magistrate is famous for fading out of discussion by slow degrees at one time he was said to be the youngest magistrate. It ever to fall asleep in court. He would black out when he thought he wasn't needed and snap to justice. The case turned around. Apparently he never missed S. churning. He has described his own mind to Pascal. It is like a superlatively smooth car with an invisible driver in control. All the driver is the magistrates unconscious. Will to Paschal a mind is a door ajar or shut. His grades. Rates are good but this side of brilliant. He has a natural gift a precise perfectly etched. Memory how will he use it. He thinks think cicadas easily. Become an actor as a lawyer when he tells his parents so they seem not to mind he could turn into an actor manager with the private the theater of his own or the director of one of the great national theaters. Commissioning new work refurbishing the classics settling questions at issue. With a word or two. The brewers are tolerant parents. Ready for anything. They met for the first time in May of nineteen sixty sixty eight a few yards away from a barricade of burning cars. She had a stone in her hand when she saw him looking at her. She put it down on. They walked up the boulevard. Sam Michel together and he told her his plan for reforming the judiciary. He was a bit older about twenty six six answering his question. She said she was from all sauce. He reminded her how the poet Paul Awad had picked up his future. Wife David the street on a rainy evening. She was from all sauce to and starving and in a desperate muddled amateurish way pretending to be a prostitute. Well this was not quite the same story in nineteen sixty eight. The Future Madam. blu-ray was studying to be an analyst analysts handwriting with employment to follow so she had been promised in the personnel section of a large department store. In the meantime she was staying with the Protestant reformed church pastor and his family in rufous. Still Do Kuan Sh. She had been on her way home to dinner when she stopped up to pick up the stone she had a mother in all sauce and a little brother on me day day day Sylvia and I have known both with sides of the barricades. The magistrate likes to say now what he means is that they cannot be crowded into a political corner. The stone own in the hand has made a rebel. At least in his recollections. She never look at a newspaper because of her reputation for being against absolutely everything so he says but perhaps it isn't exact. She looks at the pages mart culture to see what is on the galleries. He reads three morning papers tapers at breakfast and if he has time lest evenings lemonde reading he narrows his eyes sometimes he looks as though everything he thinks and believes had been translated into a foreign language and suddenly back again when Pascal was about nine his father said what do you suppose you will do one day. They were at breakfast. Pascal's Uncle Day. was there like everyone else. What's Pascal called Him Day Day? Pascal looked across at him and said I want to be a bachelor like day day. His mother moaned. Oh no and covered overturn face. The magistrate waited until she had recovered before speaking. She looked up smiling. Bit embarrassed then he explained and slowly and carefully. The day was too young to be considered a bachelor. He was a student a youth a student a student. He repeated thinking perhaps that if he kept saying it day would study hard. Data had a button of knows that looked ridiculous on someone so tall will and a massive curly fair hair because of the hair the magistrate could not take him seriously his private name for day was Harpo Harpo that period of POSCO's life nine rounding ten was also the autumn before an important election year. The elections were five months off but already people argued over dinner and Sunday lunch one Sunday in October. The table was attacked by wasps drawn in from the garden. Pardon by a dish of sliced Mellon the last of the season particularly fragrant and sweet. The French doors to the garden stood open sunlight. Sunlight entered and struck through the wine decanters and dissolved in the wax tabletop in Pale red and gold from his place. Plus call call could see the enclosed garden the apartment blocks behind it a golden poplar tree and the wicker chairs where the guests earlier are had sat with their drinks. There were two couples the Trabant US older than Pascal's parents and the Chevalier cliches. Who who had not been married long madam? Chevalier Crochet attended an art history. Course with pus calls mother on Thursday afternoons. They had never been here before and were astonished to discover a secret garden in Paris with chairs grass. A Garden Ray. A tree just as their expression of amazement was starting to run thin and patches of silence appeared Abelardo newly come from Kadi's appeared at the the door and called them to lunch. She said it's ready though. That was not what am brew a had asked her to say at least not that way. The guests got up without haste. They were probably as hungry as Pasquale but didn't want to show ebbelaar went on standing staring at the top. Most leaves of the poplar trying to remember what she ought to have said a few minutes later just as they were starting to eat their Mellon. wasps came thudding outing against the table like pebbles thrown the adults froze as though someone had drawn a gun posco news. That sitting still was a good way. Eighty stung if you wave. Your napkin shouted orders. The Wasp might fly away but he was not expected to give instructions. He was is here with adults to discover how conversation is put together how to sound interesting without being forward amusing without seeming. Familiar failure at that moment day didn't unprecedented and courageous thing. He picked up the platter of Melon Crawling with wasps and took it outside. Aside as far as the foot of the tray and came back to applause at least his sister clapped and young Madam. Chevalier Crochet Cried Bravo although Bravo. Day smiled but then he was always smiling. His sister wish he wouldn't. The smile gave his brother-in-law another the reason for calling him Harpo sitting down he seemed to become entwined with this chair. He was too tall ever to be comfortable. He needed larger chairs tables that were both higher and wider so that he would not bump his knees or put his feet on the shoes of the lady sitting opposite Pascal. Father Father just said so no Marm Ellen. It was something he particularly liked and there might be none now until that summer. If data had asked his opinion instead of jumping up so impulsively he might of said. Just leave it and take a chance on getting stung. Well no more for anyone. The guests sat a little straighter waiting for the next course beef veal or mutton or the possibility of Duck Pascal's mother asked him to shut the French doors. He did not expect another wasp invasion. But there might be strays madam. Chevalier Crochet roce remarked. That Moscow was tall for his age then asked what his age was. He is almost ten said Madam brew a looking at her son was some. I'm wonder I can hardly believe it. I don't understand time Madam. Turbo said she did not have to consult a watch to know the exact time. It must be quarter to two now if it was her daughter. Brigitte had just landed in Salonika whenever her daughter boarded a plane. Madame tour ban a- accompanied her in her. Mind Minute by minute thessalonica Monsieur.

"The generous on your part whether we love it we we kind of know what it means there is that familiarity and I think throughout history and around the world we've needed very little encouragement to don a disguise and I think as you as you say we do our podcast interrogate those motivations and and myriad meanings all the psychology ticket ah the limited time it is often a time that is set apart physically psychologically it's often clothing this ward almost on these sort of set piece the personal private history of costumes so the parties the summer fates or those schools days and then intricate subcultures and sort of if you think about the creativity of the calls play communities and the sort of hierarchy and great yes I guess move of different themes within just within the calls play community you can get sort of more than super specific and often the elaborate outfits we were just tell so much of the story and we feel that that story has been not heard enough in history and so that's why we're trying to kind of elevator I guess and importantly we always roots are compensations in contemporary context so it might be that we cross referenced the work of a particular fashion designer Craig Green we're doing the seasonal around or we find parallels between the past and present so for example connections between what was worn at the Roman of bull say in one thousand nine hundred three and pop culture moments like the outrage Milania chumps hideous don't care as these strange kind of Canadians come together which I think always even to ask pricing I think so I think it is that way that even looking back into the past you can always have these very strong resonances and direct connections with the present right and I also think it's really interesting I studied fashion and this way but costume and fancy dress really as this semi-chaotic and how it can relay these kind of socially recognized symbols without having to say anything kind of these culturally social society recognized steroids types tropes being a witch or a popular figure and we'll talk more about that later in the podcast and but so in America especially we associate dress coming up in costume or fancy dress primarily with halloween although Santa cons become a huge thing lately I don't know the the UK uh-huh Yeah Santa's descend upon New York City or wherever they are in the world across the nation but it's pretty interesting but so and I'm looking forward to that and December nearing walkaway Oh man it's pretty it's pretty interesting experience other words I might use it other than interesting I'll tell you what that from now on the festival sorry sorry we don't tell you right affair but as soon as Halloween ends we get in shape for that kidding me so throw history we find fancy dress really in the most unlikely of places so moving you can both speak about the different ways fancy dress has been used historically outside of these more typical Halloween like celebrate nations right well again you're quite right to say isn't it just a small idea isn't it kind of the season lease specific moment where we all dressed as witches but let's just say we are not running out of topics to discuss anytime and in fact alarmingly our master list of things that we want to cover just gets bigger and bigger and surprising it kind of on a weekly basis I'm exaggerating no I think what we've learned since we started the show is that fancy dress is just this incredible filter three which to see the world and so that gives us a license to visit lavish costume balls from bygone eras to follow the roots of protest marches eaves upon some pretty tasteless interpretations of themes that high we've we've rummaged around in the Archives of the National Theatre here in London through jewelry the rich and famous and print about on stage regularly academy in London at the World Academy of Arts which is a sort of an establishment all of its own

"London's national theatre is perfection in concrete. It's the work of the architect sedan is last and was completed in nineteen seventy six, but this story is about the recent fetishes ation of brutalism. It's not about the power of theater, not only know the role of the Southbank in London's cultural life. It's about light, touch, doc sanctuary and wrath focus, and perhaps in ice cream in the interview if you could. I've been going to the national for three decades and seeing Shakespeare sometime and numerous star turns I've mostly seen things I've loved occasionally plays have been sleeping juicing. And sometimes play that shakes you against the sea of troubles. There's something about that fit. That no matter the quality of the production. Just makes you feel good safe and away from the world. The begins with me, leaving my house or work and crossing over Waterloo bridge to reach the theater, you have to turn your back on the city. Cross the muddy debts of the Thames and leave at least some of the day behind. Then down some Pissy stairs. And there you are on the road. Southbank promenade where life somehow unfolds the more leisurely pace with Woking lock, Tom seniors or foot pumping skateboarders. Then into the nationals Voss lobby where lip staining red wine and flap Jackson being consumed by clicked crowd. The crosses ages. Ready looks done up for night-out. Let's join them in glass as we see the sun slink down through the epic windows. Tonight. We're seeing a play in the national theaters little space and hear those nice up hosted seats that you know. So well, there's just time to either crowd and guess at their lives when United here then phones off lights down and. Tonight is performance of network and the story of the news anchor gets angry.

"All of the things. She just wanted to escape the pressure. I'm actually very. I'm very excited about this film. In the trailer itself has a piece of advertising is not the strongest trailer by comparison to the very early teaser. Trailer that came out which I thought was really really well done that. I mean apart from the fact that it's a level of access to the store to Whitney Houston's archives To people involved in life more access and we've had before it's pretty much because of the person who's behind the documentary Kevin McDonald. He's made a bit of a career of light with narrative. Films like The Eagle instead of play and lossiemouth Scotland all which a fine but he's documentary films. I've always loved his Oscar winning documentary one day. September is amazing Touching the void is amazing but I loved his documentary on Bob Molly. I've no interest in reggae music and I'd have no interest in Mali but I was fascinated and completely arrested by that documentary in the way that he was able to The way that he's able to offer a new and interesting perspective on someone that is a popular figure. I'm looking forward to seeing how he approaches Whitney with that. And he's also quite rigorous for a person who's Positioning Popular Culture's as fascinating is Whitney. Houston I feel like that's going to be a massive benefits. And he dedicates time to them like molly was like a three hour documentary. Yeah but what's funny is Rod. After I watched the trailer for this documentary. I would hang on. This is not the best Whitney to come out since she died so I went back and watched the one that came out. Loss was called Whitney be may or something like that and these two documentaries are at the same woman have completely different narratives which I found fascinating so the one that came right law. She cannot be made focuses on had troubles inhere addictions and marriage and all the things that basically delivered to demise and this one celebrates this incredible. I on of famous performers black performers Just pop performance and these bearable that holder on this incredible pedestal and her amazing voice in talent in Ashi leapt alive. And I find that very interesting. Sorry if I if I had to pick between the two I served in the other one. I definitely thought this one going back to what Daniel said. And then touching them. What just just mentioned. I think that's actually one of the problems with why the particular trailer doesn't work as well as it could actually deliberately trying to tuck him a hot streak of it too much. I think it's trying to force a bit of emotion into the trailer in kind of get people bit nostalgic That's one of the the kind of the issues I had with this trailer. It does give you a really good insight into what the actual documentary will be about. And it's got some really great into these lined up in there but at the same time I don't feel like the trailer itself was structured particularly well up. Didn't make me like jump at seeing. This was a big vote of confidence to the film and he actually eats premiered out of competition at CON son. And that's you know that's a pretty big vote of confidence towards the corn equality of the film of the quality of the people behind it It's also just that can mimic Donald also British filmmaker. He's not an American filmmaker so that offers a possibility of a different perspective. That could be a couldn't quite illuminating. So I'm very excited. I'm not even a used fan but I'm quite excited. What I find fascinating is timing wise. This would actually be really interesting because we've just had the incredible notice that was beach. Ella with being first Black Female Chela but the interesting thing about it is that we get to see a female artist or just a black artist. Who GETS TO BE SO unapologetically black in her art and in Persona and image but that's built upon the fact that throughout the eighties nineties. They were all of these audits. That couldn't do that and faced incredible hardships because what they were forced to do or asked to do or couldn't do because of the race bike. You Have Whitney Houston you have Michael Jackson. You see the things that they had to go through which beyond say now doesn't all refuses to and it's just really interesting things about the archive footage in this is going to be really interesting and very insightful for Stralia audiences you can catch it probably a little bit later this year. And she got all of those trends more hits a youtube dot com for slash. You just wrapping up over in. The states is cinema Kahn. Which is essentially the world's largest cinema trade show with film studios in Cinema Owners? Come together to get some sort of circle joke situation going of how much money. They're all going to make in the coming months. But the exciting part is that would studios hulking all day WHIZ. We get out very first. Looks at some of the most anticipated films coming down the pipeline. Stunts SHOWCASING ABBA films. We all thought sounded terrible. That might actually be good vice versa team and stuff. So what? Were all our highlights. Kids Daniel Ugo. I well there were there. Were two films. I was quite excited to he. talked about cinema. I'm the I was Joel. Edgerton new film his follow up to the gift on which is boy erased which is by a book about the son of a Baptist preacher who is forced to participate in a Conversion therapy I mean jealous has done. Made a real really kill a debut with the gift so he obviously has the chops in. He's a has the chops as a writer as well because he's also writing this but and the subject matter obviously of tremendous interest on because of new wave of great KWA themed films coming out and the cost lanes got Nicole Kidman Queen Goddess of once again. Joe I'M WIG Joel. Edgerton isn't it Russell. Crowe is in it and Lucas hedges. Playing the lead and Lucas hedges. As far as I'm concerned is one of the most exciting actors in the world. Even he was even exciting through billboards. Movie he's playing but also the fact that there has been certain degree taking in fact there's actually quite a little queer involved in the film like Dolan and Tracy'd on it looks at Joel. Edgerton taking it quite seriously so I was excited. Bahia positive response to that. But really it was all about fucking widening. Reimagining of Doria Jen Toes Seventies Societies. And the fact that people saying the footage was off the train like people. I mean yeah like I'm reading through like looking through the twitter comments like people saying one of the most fucked up things I've ever seen that cinema con incredibly violent and bloody until not mentioned Tilda. That's when you get into like the fact that it's top of the fact that it's the Director of Columbia by your name following up with with a horror film with the same co tame the helped him create by your name Based on one of the truly great horror films of the near the twentieth century and constant cosseted includes Khloe Moritz. Soon Dakota Johnson. Tilda swinton like such a great description of what the footage is and it sounds nuts. Yeah but also sounds completely in step with. What's the spirit is but also different enough to not have to feel like it's GonNa live in the shadow of agenda so yet and the fact that Tilda Swinton is playing the crazy head of a German ballet school who turns out to be. I mean. Hey tweeted. I retweeted was that Luca. Guadagnino spirit is black. Swan meets the exorcist in a seventies billion MARC JACOBS AD climaxed in Dania's ecstasy.

That's got me very excited. And secondly this one reading everyone's reactions online maybe not so excited but I'm still. Intrigued is the remake of Roman. It has an amazing cost in Taryn.
