YEREVAN. – The performances by the Héliotropion French contemporary theater have become traditional in High Fest.
Even though Patrick Matoian and Clotilde Tiradritti are not in Armenia for the first time with theatrical works, the couple is also aikido masters.
And the masters decided to “move” the art of theater on to the tatamis, and they organized a special “internship” in an aikido school in capital city Yerevan.
Matoian and Tiradritti also spoke about the ethics of a person who is involved in martial arts.
“If you want to defeat someone in a fight, first defeat his ‘I,’” Patrick Matoian advised, in particular.
