Paul Marque, I imagine that your days are completely different from before quarantine. How, as a dancer, do you deal with this isolation?
Not that bad, I can’t complain. I’m safe in my Paris apartment, my family and I are all doing fine. Just waiting for this pandemic to end.
The conditions are not the best to stay fit, keep dancing and training - my apartment is not as big as a dance studio. I work on my own and without the other dancers but I don’t have rehearsals anymore…
Here in Sweden, professional dancers work online using Zoom and other ways to take classes. I assume that you do the same?
Yes, we have online dance classes every day with the company’s teachers. It enables us to stay in contact with the Opera and keep on training.
It’s like a daily meeting with the teachers and the other dancers, which brings a kind of structure or working space that can be hard to find on our own.
