Memories and interviews

  André LARQUIE
 

To think of Rudolf Nureyev is unquestionably to position oneself at an unusually highly demanding level, both with regard to oneself and to others. It means attempting to work towards the perfection and the intransigence that motivated him, always because of the love and respect of the Art to which he devoted his whole life.

The fact that he chose to remain in France, where he began his career in the West, and that he decided to create a Centre for Choreographic Art and Medical and Scientific research within the framework of a Foundation, makes us responsible.

It is up to us to keep his memory alive, and as a tribute to him, we must take up the new challenges he gave us.
