ca de inceput de saptamina ceva care sa ne aseze pe un culoar bun in care vom alerga saptamina asta: unii pentru bani, altii pentru glorie, altii pentru sine, altii….
Mikhail Baryshnikov intr-un interviul la Tel Aviv pentru Haaretz:
On disliking being called a sex symbol
I am not a sex symbol. It’s just what people made out of me. It’s a kind of illusion from the stage, maybe. People who know me, it has nothing to do with reality. I am not a skirt chaser, you know, I am not a sex maniac. I am not nice-looking, I am not tall, I am not a hero by any means. And I am not a macho kind of a guy, so what’s this sex all about?”
“Well, I always say that in the morning I try to challenge myself not to get bored with myself, that I want to surprise myself. But it has to be not to get too bored or very skeptical about everything, very passive and cynical. And if I think that way, it gives me energy and intellectual curiosity. You have to have really interesting friends who can challenge you. You know, if you do something not kosher, you have to hear from them, and say it when they do something not right. That, I think, that’s my motto in life. I’ve always had really wonderful friends, in Russia and outside of Russia, and that [allows me to maintain] my life ethics. Clean life ethics. And that reflects then on stage.”
I’m afraid of death like everybody else. I am not religious person, I don’t practice. I was christened, and I am Russian Orthodox, but I am agnostic. Let’s say, you know, I’m not an atheist, but I don’t practice. I like to see rituals — the choreography of it and the spirit and beauty of it. But you never know. You never know what might happen.”
