With a child like Iris at home, we feel we don’t need to go to the theatre or to the circus anymore. She’s a real entertainer and a comic, and we laugh for a whole evening when she starts a show. But her true passion is drawing and she can spend hours with a pencil in hand. It feels very strange to me, the usual interviewer to be part of the game…But it’s fun! Florence/Pirouette

A place you saw when you were a child, and that made its mark on you? My grand mother’s house in Geneva really stayed with me. Books and books everywhere on shelves, drawings and paintings on the walls, the workshop with large pieces of white Carrara marble, sculptures and sculptor’s tools. But what really marked me is the smell, a mix of cedar wood and essential oils. My grandma (a painter), was a vegetarian and a militant for the protection of the environment. She was waking up every morning at dawn to practice yoga; It was feeling rather strange to me at that time.
