Then there was the 1 of December . On the morning rehearsal Mats and Ana where on stage, checking the light for the evening performance. And there were only 4 of us sitting in the empty theatre, watching them dance. Present turning into memory and back.
And then there was the evening of the 1 of December. Ana was sitting quietly after the show in the curtain, signing autographs for her friends on the pieces of wood freshly cut by Yvan Auzeli when performing 'Axe' . And suddenly she turned her head and stated, still with  great charm - "You know it only looks easy, but actually it's really hard".
