Well, It Isn’t Paris
Parler Paris Previews…
Wednesday, September 21, 2005
Approved and Accredited by ASID!
Naturally, I’ll be Eurostarring it from the Gare du Nord to Waterloo Station in a breezy two-and-one-half-hours, with my laptop and reading material to while away the time. Among the documents I am taking is a 60-page report from the Mairie of Paris I received this morning thanks to my favorite “little birdie” in the City of Paris administration who keeps me informed of what’s hot and what’s not, what’s in and what’s out, what’s on and what’s off. It’s from the Direction du Développement Econimique et de l’Emploi — a report on the demographic and socia-economic structure of each arrondissement of Paris. How fascinating!
Let me share a few tidbits that surprised me…
There are 6300 inhabitants in the 3rd arrondissement (where I live) of foreign nationality, representing 18.3% of the population of the district, compared with 14.5% citywide. I expected it to be lower than the 6th arrondissement, which is such a big attraction particularly for Americans (there are more short-term rental apartments in the 6th than in any other!). However, there are fewer — 5400 of foreign nationality, representing 12% of the district’s population. The arrondissement with the least numbers of foreign residents?…the 12th with 9.8% and the most?…surprisingly, the 2nd with 21.5%!
The report does not attempt to break down the various nationalities, but in both the 2nd and 3rd, there are many wholesalers and small factories, many of which are owned and operated by the Chinese residents. I can only guess that this contributes to the high numbers.
The most heavily populated district in Paris is the 15th with 225,360 inhabitants, 10.6% of the Paris population. Not surprising, considering it is also Paris largest geographic area with 8.5 square kilometers. The least populated is the 1st, with 16,890 inhabitants, not even one percent, in less than two square kilometers. Geographically, the smallest district of Paris is the 2nd — not even one square kilometer, followed by the 3rd with just over one square kilometer. No wonder it feels so much like a little village!
When I’m back from London on Monday, I’m sure I’ll have tales to tell and lots of comparisons to make between these two great cities of Europe. The Eurostar high speed train being as simple, easy, fast and inexpensive as it is to get from center city to center city in what feels like the blink of an eye, makes a weekend excursion there no more difficult than a trip across town to have dinner with friends…so I find myself there often enough.
Still, when someone asks me “how was London?”…the answer remains the same: “Well, it isn’t Paris.”
A la prochaine…

* France Indicators
SMIC: Guaranteed Minimum Wage
The institution of a government-fixed minimum wage applicable to all employees dates back to 1950. The present statutory national minimum wage, which was introduced in 1970 (“salaire minimum interprofessionnel de croissance” or SMIC), is intended to guarantee the lowest-paid workers their purchasing power and a share in the nation’s economic growth. To this end, the SMIC is not only pegged to one of the consumer price indices but may also, through the application of a review procedure, be raised by decree of the Council of Ministers…Subscribers Read On…/frenchproperty/insider

PARIS WALKS with Leonard Pitt
Leonard Pitt, author of the bestselling “Promenades dans le Paris Disparu,” and founder of the Berkeley Chocolate Club, will be in Paris for one month, September 15 to October 16, and is now organizing small groups for walks through the city.
Four walks are offered. Each lasts about 3 hours+.
Cost: 60 Euros per person. Maximum 8 to a group. Inquire about group rates.
Leonard’s unique perspective offers a view of Paris in all its beauty and drama that is not available anywhere else. Diane Johnson speaks of his book with praise in her latest book, “Into a Paris Quartier,” and the French press came out with numerous glowing reviews when his book appeared in 2002.
“Leonard is completely legitimate, he’s impregnated with Paris. He sees things that we don’t see.” – Le Figaro
“This American friend knows Paris like the back of his hand and illustrates clearly what the serious stroller would have a hard time deciphering on his own – the history that runs beneath today’s buildings.” – Le Nouvel Observateur
Jana Jagoe took a walk with Leonard in Spring 2005. She writes:
“If you want to truly understand the impact that Napoleon and Haussmann had on Paris the best guide is Leonard Pitt. He not only knows his subject matter but has the actor’s ability that allows you to see the past and the characters who filled it. I’ve lived half the year in Paris for five years and have taken dozens of tours. None compares to Leonard’s. All of the pieces are there. If you have the opportunity, don’t miss this one.”
Walk 1. Left Bank. Begins at St. Germain des Prés and ends at Square Viviani across from Notre Dame.
Walk 2. Ile de la Cité.
Walk 3. The Marais.
Walk 4. Paris and Chocolate.

Special Note: Leonard Pitt will be the guest speaker at the Saturday night dinner of the Living and Investing in France Conference October 21 – 23, 2005 at the Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco.

FACT Professional Acting Training and Performance
FACT (the French-American Association for Cinema and Theatre) will begin its 17th year of professional acting training and performance on October 3rd.
Since its creation in 1989 by Sarah Eigerman, an American teacher and director based in Paris and New York, our artistic goal has been two- fold: to nurture the actor’s creative process and to explore cultural exchange on a human level.
Ms. Eigerman stud
ied theatre at Smith College and New York University, acted off-Broadway and at the N.Y. Shakespeare Festival, taught at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and co-founded The Real Stage (which counted Geraldine Page among its teachers) in New York, before moving to Paris.
Her teaching approach is inspired by Stanislavski and his American followers, grounded in holistic mind-body disciplines and honed by nearly 30 years of experience. Its basic principle: the actor does not simply “interpret” a text, but creates the living experience evoked by the text. This creative work involves the actor in the character’s life. It is a process of transformation and transcendence, worthy of respect.
For the 2005-06 season, FACT offers seven different classes: Improvisation; American Acting in Paris (taught exclusively in English); The Actor’s Voice; Technique and Scenes; Sense Memory; Scene Study; and Acting for the Camera. Students enroll in one or several classes per week, on a semester or annual basis, according to their individual needs.
New this year: each semester will feature a presentation of the work through a “scene night” and a week of open classes.
Our June performance project, which has been co-produced by the Guichet Montparnasse theatre for the past eight years, will focus on works by Chekhov.
Contact us for further information on our programs, admission requirements, scheduling, fees, financial aid, or to make an appointment for an interview.

Special Note: HOT CLUB PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT RED CROSS RELIEF FUND
Time Was Soft There: A Paris Sojourn at Shakespeare and Co. By Jeremy Mercer, this is part memoir, part travelogue, and part biography of Shakespeare & Co.’s legendary owner, George Whitman.
Talk and book signing:
Daniele L. Thomas Easton
Consul Hon. de France a Philadelphie et Wilmington
Summary: With gangsters on his tail and his meager savings in hand, crime reporter Jeremy Mercer fled Canada to Paris in 1999. Broke and on the cusp of homelessness, Mercer found himself invited to a tea party amongst the riff raff of the Parisian fantasy that is Shakespeare & Company. Lost in his very own version of Alice in Wonderland, Mercer falls down the rabbit hole to a life of camaraderie in the famous bookstore, becoming proprietor George Whitman’s confidant and right-hand man, trading free labor for an unforgettable experience. The ultimate story of bohemian Paris, this charming world is filled with unique characters like the eccentric British poet, Simon, the beautiful blonde, Pia, and Whitman, who holds the key to it all.
