  Serbs are angry at the Australian government — but the reasons are more complicated than you might think In Serbia, Novak Djokovic is not just a tennis star, he's a national hero who has brought hope and light to the country after dark times, Isabella Higgins writes from Belgrade.In the southern suburbs of the capital Belgrade, the tennis star is memorialised with not one, but two murals in a complex of ageing concrete, brutalist, apartment buildings.

from here and elsewhere

if in the name Circonova, we hear well "circus", here it opens to all the arts with shows where physical and artistic performances mingle with musicians, dancers, Shadow and light games, clowns ... it's an open window on the creation and on the world because some companies come from abroad to the image of the Mandingue Cirque of Guinea Conakry and its show Tana Soft RI? (How are you ?). Acrobatics, contortions, dances, singing and live music, the 12 young artists know everything. But behind the "show", they evoke the story of all the anonymous trying to pass the borders and the sea at the risk of their lives.

Affordable shows

The Festival wants to be accessible to all. Hence a tariff policy does not afford or the students (they can enjoy a fair equivalent to 5 euros the show). Several free shows are also proposed as was the case on the weekend of January 15th and 16th.

There is still one dozens shows before this eleventh edition closes SS doors. Among them we will mention among others (because everything is enticing in this program!):

- The absolute of Boris Gibé and the Cie the things of nothing. The artist will evolve in a four-storey sheet metal, nine meters in diameter, twelve high, installed on the forecourt of the Cornouaille Theater. The public will be installed in the spiral stairs of the structure to follow this experience.

- Dick Love, and with Sandrine Juglair who, around a pole bar, interrogates male attitudes and manhood.

- K Kurz Davor in which a woman "a little nurse" tries to sit a rubber man. Both rebound on a large pneumatic mattress in the middle clay dust volutes, accompanied by a music played live.

- Eternal Idiots of the EL Nucleo company with five acrobats and a musician who seize the theme of adolescence and his upheavals based on a giant male-shaped mobile structure.

- Poetic manipulation of Raoul Lambert Cie: A "Mental Magic" show with two "conferensorciers" that range from media libraries to guess books but especially to play with words.

Merson Says: Cream rises to the top, so will Grealish .
Paul Merson assesses the difficulties Jack Grealish has experienced settling at Man City and explains why he is in no doubt his talent will soon come to the fore.I didn't think it would be a walk in the park for Jack Grealish at Manchester City, but it's been hard for him so far. We're talking about a player who whenever Aston Villa got the ball, they looked for him, it was like, 'give the ball to Jack'.
