In order to fully understand the power of the deep and mighty voices of the Red Army Choir, it is necessary to consider the history of Russia itself. The two cannot be separated. This choir of men, all of them soldiers of the revolution, had a fundamental role to play. Born to serve and sustain the fatherland, its task was to lift the morale of the exhausted troops, and it did so by glorifying the revolutionary ideal, allowing people to re-live the spirit of the October Revolution and the storming of the Winter Palace. As people listened to the Choir, the voices of these men, these soldiers, became the voice of the brand new U.S.S.R., the voice of the Soviets.
This strong spirit sprang from a people who had suffered much: under the tsars, during the wars, throughout the revolutions, the famines and the political indoctrination. Through all of this, the spirit of the Soviets endured, rising again after every false step, strengthened by the hardships.
But the Russian people are also open and extremely sensitive to culture, art and literature. They are a people who have had to be strong from the very beginning because their roots lie in one of the harshest territories in the world.
Their spirit, and this, their choir, is truly exceptional. It has to be, because it is the soul of Russia, it represents the country, makes it grow and shine. It is a warm, brave soul, full of life and hope.

CLOWN THEORY by Jango Edwards
The art of the clown actor is not just a profession, but a lifestyle that demands an understanding of emotion, sensitivity, passion, pathos and the heart.
The essence of clown, in the pure sense, is a combination of innocence and maturity. The Clown Theory Encounter is a way of uniting these qualities so each participant can discover and develop their personal clown, and apply it to their life after the course is completed.
A combination of 20 years of professional experience, simple awareness and common logic, enables the instructor to reveal the clown character within each of us. Through the use of assorted games, physical activities, socio-logical demonstrations, improvisations and performance, each student will find his or her comic simplicity, innocence and logic, which are the fundamental ingredients of the clown formula.
A play-environment is created, in which trust within the group ensemble can develop. This motivates the students to remember the innocence they have forgotten. It will also reveal present social and human conditions.
It may sound complicated but in fact it’s simple : It is the simplicity that is difficult for us to grasp !
Clown is a social character in all realms of life. The performance situation, be it theater or circus, is probably the most common form through which we know clowns; but it’s the least important.
The Clown Theory Class first reveals the innocence each of us has surrendered; and then proves it is never too late to recapture it again. It’s a challenge, it’s revealing but most of all it’s fun.
Jango has tutored numerous actors in the past which assisted in their personal and artistic success. El Tricicle, Loco Brusca, Nina Hagen, Grace Jones, Slava Polunin, Venessa Redgrave, Le Nuls, Peter Shub, Santiago Segura and Aldo Giovanni and Giacomo are but a few of his prior students.
As a Clown Performer you will work with other professionals in an ensemble; relate to the audience in unpredictable and spontaneous situations and learn how to improvise and adapt in order to give the gift of laughter to an unsuspecting public. You will explore the role of the comic actor as a social warrior, laughter terrorist and mercenary of humor.
“The world is a stage and each must play his part” might seem a cliché to some people but for the clown it is the truth.

Even if the roots of this instrument go back to China (the sheng being the oldest known free reed instrument), the capital of the accordion is and remains definitively Paris!
The accordion dear to Chateaubriand, which became popular in France in the middle of the inter-war period, is today the eternal sound of the city of light.
Under the leadership of Jacques Ferchit (a well-known accordionist and conductor with an already busy career) surrounded by outstanding musicians (who crossed the road of Charles Trenet, Léo Ferré or Charles Aznavour) as Jacky Delance (pianist of Renaud, Charles Dumont, etc.) is created the PARIS TOUR EIFFEL (in homage to the song of Zappy Max and Jacques Hélian) whose objective is to resonate the great french standards around the world.
As these outstanding musicians are not unaware of the most beautiful works that have made the great hours of French popular music. They decide to meet in a collective, which is much more than an orchestra, since the musicians who compose it take small breaks nostalgic or simply come to recharge the sound of the inevitable melodies of our heritage.
These timeless works for accordion that they make resonate during each of the performances of this ensemble that decides today to pass a course by fixing for posterity a first album that will regroup titles specially selected for the many performances that PARIS EIFFEL TOWER has given to the four corners of the without ever having offered a record to his audience!
The first album recorded by this Orchestrapay hommage to sometimes forgotten names (Geo Koger, George Ulmer, Vincent Scotto) but also to more popular composers such as Francis Lemarque, Charles Trenet ...
A first album with a very Parisian sound - yet intended for the greatest number - but destined for an international career. PARIS TOUR EIFFEL finally allowing everyone to hear the original sound of the Parisian suburbs!
In memory of one of their favorite french singer, Joe Dassin, they now decide to join his son, Julien Dassin, whom they accompany now on all the stages of the world.
