In the spirit of their production, Akshongay, which means “together” in Bengali, Nova and Louis tackled our questionnaire together. Their partnership and sense of humour is undeniable.
OK, here we go:
Favourite word = Pouilly-Fumé – Louis has been trying to teach Nova how to say it properly for over 10 years (a dry white wine)
Favourite book = “So you married a foreigner whose name starts with M”
Favourite place = our happy place
Food on birthday = Grapes (in a liquified carbonated form, preferably from central France)
Music = I’m a little bit country and she’s a little bit Rock & Roll
Guilty pleasure = “Dancing with the Stars” and YouTube videos
First dance lesson = Nova: ballet / Louis: ballet jazz
Other profession = Empress or sommelier
Akshongay = Connection, separation, caring, laughing, crying
Come see Nova and Louis together on stage from April 11th to 13th at the Enwave Theatre
