It's been a few years since dance was
on the schedule for the St Barth
Music Festival. But the 27th annual
edition of this leading cultural event
on the island features two evenings of
ballet, sponsored by the Steve Martin
Charitable Foundation, as the 2011
festival kicks off on Friday and Satur-
day, January 7 and 8.
"The last time we had dance was in
2006 with the <> the all-
male dancers from NYC," says festi-
val president Frances De Broff. "I
brought the dance back because this
past year I saw the movie
<> a documentary about the
Paris Opera Ballet starring all
the dancers whom we have brought to
St.Barth. Marie-Agnes Gillot,
Aurelie Dupont, Benjamin Pech,
etc... This movie is being shown in
the U.S. and in Paris."


After four festivals without
dance, De Broff also appre-
ciated its popularity on the
island: "I spoke to a few
people in St.Barth and real-
ized they were still interest-
ed in having dance," she
observes. "So here we are
again at AJOE with won-
derful dancers from France,
who were all students at
the Paris Opera
Ballet." The dancers are
currently soloists with the
Nice Opera Ballet and Les
Grands Ballets Canadiens.

Eckets are for sale at
the tourist office beginning
Monday, January 3.
Advance tickets at 10% dis-
count available
January 3 thru 7 only.
A "Season Pass-book"
s 10% less than individual
tickets.
Children under 13 free.

EMPTY PORT ON NEW YEAR's EVE?
Due to unusually high seas brought by a low-pressure
system causing storms in the USA, the yacht docks and
commercial port were obliged to close from December
28-January 2. In spite of the bad weather, with rainy skies
as 2010 rolled in, the port had one of its biggest holiday
seasons to date.

Ten artists who participated in the 26th annual St Barth
Music Festival were presented with the island's medal
of honor in a special ceremony at the Hotel de la
Collectivist.

HAITI: GENERAL MOBILIZATION
One week after a devastating earthquake in Haiti, dona-
tions of 130,000 euros were made by the population of
Saint Barth, primarily during a "mobilization" day on the
dock in Gustavia, with a "solidarity village" organized by
the Multi-professional Economic Chamber in association
with the Lions Club, the Rotary Club, and the Red Cross.

January 28
INAUGURATION OF THE HOSPITAL
EXTENSION
Built on the foundations of the former hospital adminis-
tration offices, a new building housing 12 modern rooms
at De Bruyn Hospital was officially inaugurated. The
budget of 3.4 million euros came from European funds,
the Collectivity, and loans.


WHAT "A" BEAUTY
The arrival of "A" in Gustavia harbor last February did
not pass unnoticed. Designed by Philippe Starck and Mar-
tin Francis, this usual looking yacht-cum-submarine could
have come right out of a James Bond film.

SOS: ONE YACHT, ONE SAILBOAT
Winds from an unexpected direction and swells from the
southwest due to a tropical depression caused problems
for two boats, including "Front Row." This 87' motor-
yacht, which navigated from the port toward the more
sheltered Anse des Cayes, was caught in a shift of wind
direction and turned on its anchor, which gave way. The
boat drifted onto the reef less than two meters from the
shore.

February 25
TERRITORIAL COUNCIL ADOPTS RECORD BUDGET
After a three-hour debate, three major modifications, and
an earthquake at 6:43pm, the territorial council voted on
the preliminary budget for the Collectivity in 2010. A
record budget with the operating budget (52.3 millions
euros) and capital expenditures (81.4 millions euros)
adding up to more than 133 million euros, as compared to
125 million in 2009.

the convent of the Sisters of Saint-Paul de Chartres in Del-
mas, Haiti, where the earthquake destroyed a school that
served over 500 students. The Collectivit 7 of Saint Barth
donated 160,000 euros for the two phases of the project. The
actual construction began in September: since then, teams of
motivated, volunteer artisans and workers have paid their

Gray floors, slatted wood, stone walls and planters, plus
a bold stroke of orange to make access to the upper level
more visible, and the Gustav III airport took on a decid-
edly new look for the peak of the tourist season. Archi-
tectural firm Design Affaires is responsible for the
makeover.


The largest private yacht in the world is in Saint Barth!
.
Eclipse, the latest acquisition by Ronian Abraniovich,
owner of the large beachfront property in Gouverneur, is
anchored between Colonabler and Gustaria, nearby its
.
'little" sister Luna, which at 377' is the 17th largest yacht
. ,
in the world and was launched in 2010. Eclipse, at 536 ,
was built by Blohna + Yoss in Hamburg, Germany. Its size
is not its only difference: if it looks like an elegant motor
yacht with its superb lines and beige and white hull,

Internationally acclaimed
artist Raimundo Figueroa is
showing a new body of
workentitledLaVidaBaila,
or Live Dances, in Saint
Barth: a series of 15 col-
lages inspired by his travels,
as well as the current state
of the world. "There was
difficult economic turmoil
everywhere I went this past
year," he says from his
home in Puerto Rico.
These collages are based on
photographs that Figueroa
took at a fashion show: "I
look at the beautiful images
from that show and paint
the same images using
watercolors with pencil and
acrylic on top." Adding to
the collage effect are
antique stamps from the
1920s through the 60s that


thing is
cyclical, in
history, in
love, and
in the
economy.
"I have
been react-
ing to the
economic
crisis, and
feel there
is a human
emotional
reaction to
that ,
regardless
to what the
situation is,
the emo-
tion of love always exists."
This is the message in this
collage medium. Among the
images are also two drag-
ons, which Figueroa calls "a
symbol of fire, a magical
being. The figure of a drag-
on and a woman are related
in my mind, in the fire and
passion of a relationship."
He sees the dragon and
woman as "twins," a recur-
ring theme, from man and
woman to yin and yang.
"Everything is by twos in
our culture," he notes. And
in much of Figueroa's work,
there are images on top of
each other, as in the Live
Dances collages: "Look
carefully and you will find
......m a;1.4 else behind the
image" he offers.
As for the theme of Live
Dances, Figueroa was edu-
cated as a musician and
responds to the concept of
dance as one of man's earli-
est arts. "I think that when
we are down, our emotions
have a tendency to make us
still, as in the reaction to a
panic attack, or an animal
that "freezes" when afraid.


The paintings are telling
everyone to get moving, to
dance, as movement repre-
sents the up and downs of
life. "We live in a cycle, it
will all come back."
There are also two large
paintings done in Saint
Barth between 2006-2008
in this show (the artist first
visited the island as a young
boy, and his work has been
shown here on previous
occasions). These large,
white paintings measure
60x72" and are entitled TU
BOCA ES MI BOCA (Your
Lips are My Lips) and IT'S
ALL ABOUT YOU. Both
are acrylic, graphite, oil
stick, oil, and collage ele-
mentonlinen.
In much of Figueroa's
work, there are images on
top of each other, as in the
Live Dances collages:
"Look carefully and you
will find ...list lhi1.4 else
behind the image" he offers.
"When I came back to Saint
Barth in the 1980s there
were no galleries for art," he
points out. But upon his
return in the 1990s, there
was the start of an art move-
ment and several galleries
has opened, although his
work has not always been
seen in traditional gallery
spaces: a recent exhibit was
at the Anglican Church and
this one is at the Elisa Bally
showroom in Gustavia
organized by the contempo-
rary art gallery, to b.art.

The art of creating
elaborate carvings
on whale teeth and
bones, or ivory, for
example, is called
scrimshaw, and one
of rs ofrue masters of
the art today, known
as scrimshanders, is
Michael Strzalkows-
ki. This Englishman,
who has lived in the
Caribbean for
decades, is often in
Saint Barth, where
his work can be seen
at Les Artisans in .
Gustaria. This week, he will
display his talent in a series
of scrimshaw demonstra-
tions at Les Artisans, on
Wednesday, Thursday, and
Friday, December 29, 30,
and 31 from 10am-12pm'
and 4-7pm.


Beautiful 3-bedroom! property with pool in Petit ~Cul


from the bones and teeth
found aboard.
"There are now a lot of
walrus tusks turning up that
- -
are semi-fossilized with
wonderful colors in them,
and thousands of years old,"
says Strzalkowski. "Those
walrus were contemporaries
with the wooly
mammoths, and
they are finding
more of those tusks
since the glaciers
are melting."
What att acts him
to this art: "I've
always been of a sculptural
.
mmd, turning drawings into
3D shapes" he says. "And I
engrave, which is also like
sculpting, I love the art of
the engraver, and studied it.
I also love the nautical
aspect of scrimshaw and the
whole Moby Dick mystic to
it, the idea of artistic sailor
bored at watch, creating
objects of artistic beauty for
his mother or girlfriend. I'm
,,
a sailor-artist myself.

master at work.

.
Practicing his scrimshaw
career since the 1970s has
.
earned this artist such nick-
names as "scrim bones" or
scrim," and each piece he
creates has a story attached.
Using whale teeth, boar
tusks, various bones, and
,
fossil ivory from extinct
creatures (all antique and
legal) he carves pendants,
earrings, brooches, paper-
weights, and cane and knife
handles, all with extreme
care and delicate design. A
recent commission, a
Medusa head, shows the
sheer sophistication of his
art, a centuries-old art that
has evolved from sailors on
whaling boats carving tools
