SYRIA’S AGONY SET IN STONE
Syrian sculptor Nizar Ali Badr has been capturing the story of refugees from his country, using pebbles from his local beach. His art has become the inspiration for a unique film – the concept of Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer, who asked Georgian animator Sandro Kancheli to bring the stone figures to life along with his music.

A similar tragic fate links Nice with Berlin since last year: Both cities have been the victims of dreadful attacks, in which trucks crashed into unsuspecting crowds. Nearly a hundred people were killed in those terrorist attacks. As a sign of solidarity with the German capital, 20 artists from Nice gathered together at the Francis Gag Theater last Sunday to present a variety of performances.
