Africa will fulfil the dream of hosting the tournament once again som

ACCLAIMED Australian director Benedict Andrews talks to the BBC about his current play Torrey Smith Eagles Jersey , his debut film and the “brave” actors in both.

As Alfred Hitchcock proved in “Psycho,” the humble bathroom shower can be used to generate spine-tingling tension and blood-curdling horror.

Yet it also has a metaphorical resonance — a place where sins can be purged, scars can be healed and mistakes of the past can be symbolically expunged.

On the basis of two of his current artistic projects, the Australian director would appear to be of much the same mind.

In his West End production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Isaac Seumalo Eagles Jersey ,” the character of Brick — played by Jack O’Connell — is introduced slumped in a shower, his right foot encased in a plaster cast.

O’Connell’s co-star Sienna Miller is also called upon to bare all during a staging of Tennessee Williams’ classic that is certainly no place for the prim or the prudish.

In Andrews’ first film “Una,” meanwhile, the title character — played by Rooney Mara — is also seen under the shower Jordan Hicks Eagles Jersey , determinedly scrubbing away the painful memory of a loveless sexual encounter.

Both works, needless to say, require the actors in question to abandon all modesty in scenes that leave little or nothing to the audience’s imagination.

Yet just as apparent in both endeavors is an emotional rawness that is, in its own way Mack Hollins Eagles Jersey , no less exposing.

“It’s a truly special, unguarded, very brave performance,” says Andrews of Mara’s work in “Una.” “I admire Rooney because her performances are always extremely raw and very honest.”

DAMASCUS, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- The Syrian army captured a district in the old quarter of the northern city of Aleppo on Tuesday, as part of a major offensive the army has recently unleashed to dislodge the rebels from that key city, a military source told Xinhua.

The military forces wrested control over the Farafira neighborhood, located northeast of the time-honored Aleppo Citadel, in the ancient quarter of the city, following battles with the rebels, the source said on condition of anonymity.

The bomb squad is now combing the neighborhood to defuse and dismantle any roadside bombs, he added.

The victory in Farafira comes as part of a wide-scale offensive the Syrian army recently unleashed to drive out the rebels from their strongholds in the eastern part of Aleppo city.

A day earlier, the Syrian military advised civilians in rebel-held areas to stay away from the rebel positions, just days after giving the civilians an option to abandon eastern Aleppo and join the government-controlled areas in the western part of the city.

State news agency SANA said tens of families left eastern Aleppo, and many rebels surrendered their weapons.

Aleppo had seen a brief truce a couple of weeks ago, but the international tension between Russia and the United States has ended the truce without extending it.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said in a recent interview that his army is determined to restore the entire Aleppo city from the rebels.

The battles in Aleppo are so important that the city is now compared to Stalingrad, which turned the tide of World War II.

Aleppo has a strategic importance for the warring parties due to its location near the Turkish borders, and being Syria's largest province and once the economic hub of Syria.

CAPE TOWN Donnel Pumphrey Eagles Jersey , Nov. 15 (Xinhua) -- South Africa accepted the outcome of a secret vote to allow France to host the prestigious Rugby World Cup 2023, SA Rugby said on Wednesday.

Although "bitterly disappointed" at the decision by the World Rugby Council to overturn a recommendation that South Africa should host the event, South Africa would not challenge the vote, SA Rugby said in a statement emailed to Xinhua.

This came after France beat South Africa and Ireland to host the competition at a World Rugby Council meeting in London on Wednesday.

"We cannot hide our desolation but Rasul Douglas Eagles Jersey , for the sake of rugby we wish the 2023 tournament hosts every success," ark Alexander, President of SA Rugby, said.

"We did everything in our power to bring the tournament to South Africa and we expected to have that right confirmed today Sidney Jones Eagles Jersey ," he said.

In September, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa led South Africa's Rugby World Cup Bid Team to London to present the country's case to host the 2023 tournament that will take place 200 years after the invention of the game of rugby by William Webb Ellis.

The South African bid has subsequently been named as the "clear leader" and "unanimous" choice of the Rugby World Cup board to host the tournament. This followed an exhaustive tendering, clarification and evaluation process. Contenders France and Ireland were rated second and third respectively.

"We produced a compelling bid document that earned the unanimous recommendation of the Rugby World Cup Ltd board. That recommendation was questioned last week by rivals, but endorsed a second time by World Rugby last week Derek Barnett Eagles Jersey ," Alexander said.

However, the view of the experts and World Rugby's leadership was overturned by World Rugby Council members, who may have had other factors to take into account, according to Alexander.

It was the fourth time that South Africa failed in its bid to host the event.

South Africa had expected the tournament Women's Corey Clement Jersey , if held in the country, to help stimulate the economy and further boost the tourism and hospitality sectors.

"After a fourth successive disappointment in the Rugby World Cup bidding process it was difficult to know where South Africa would go from here," Alexander said.

"It will be for the next generation of SA Rugby leaders to decide whether to compete for the 2027 tournament or beyond," he said.

He voiced confidence that South Africa will fulfil the dream of hosting the tournament once again someday.
