The final curtain has fallen for my great love Leyla after a long, serious illness on May 21st, 2022.
Full of gratitude, I look back on 37 years of intimate love and deep connection. She was the centre of my life and of our 30-year stage career. I was privileged to share my life with an extraordinary woman, choreographer and dancer.
Together we were able to explore the world and meet countless fantastic people/artists, dancers and experience many friendships worldwide.
With great gratitude to our audience and guests, our beloved ensemble, our project groups and workshop participants, fellow artists, judges, contestants, sponsors, photographers, technicians, specialist magazines, agencies, organisers, vendors, helpers, friends and family and the many others, we take our final bow.
In deep mourning
Your Roland Jouvana
The funeral will take place on 01.06.2022 at 12.00 o'clock in the chapel of the "Alter Friedhof" in 47057 Duisburg-Neudorf, Sternbuschweg 295, Germany.
I ask for your understanding that it may take a little more time to reply to messages of condolence due to the large number of messages. Thank you very much for your sympathy.
