Or when the most avant-garde cabaret in Paris welcomes the first "Guest Creator" in its history ...
5 March to 31 May 2012
Having welcomed many "Guest Creatures" onto its legendary stage, notably Dita Von Teese, Arielle Dombasle and Pamela Anderson, Crazy Horse Paris is pleased to announce the first "Guest Creator" in its history: Christian Louboutin.
The celebrated creator of the red sole was invited to give his fresh interpretation of the Crazy show, which he describes as "an iconic Paris monument, a monument to dance, a fantastic, modern idea of the celebration of Women for Women".
Christian Louboutin is directing four original and unique tableaux, inspired by various eclectic worlds, from hip hop to art masterpieces, which constitute a personal look at femininity in all its forms. Assisted by Patricia Folly, choreographer and dancer at Le Crazy, Gilles Papain, video designer and Cyril Insergueix, lighting designer, he also collaborated with an eclectic team of distinguished artists, including David Lynch and Swizz Beatz, who both composed original music; Mark Fast who created the costumes; and Youssef Nabil, who created the poster for the show.
Entitled FEU (fire) the result of this remarkable collaboration will kick off on Monday March 5th 2012 and remain on stage at the Parisian cabaret until May 31st 2012.
This creative venture is a first for Louboutin who has always found great inspiration in the cabaret and its dancers.
"Christian Louboutin and Crazy Horse Paris are symbols of Parisian life whose worlds know no borders; symbols of the world of creativity, wonder and modernity. They share the same sources of inspiration – Women, of course, but also the world around them – and both are exceptionally skilled at producing unique and surprising creations. This is why Christian Louboutin was the natural choice as our first Guest Creator", explains Andrée Deissenberg, Managing Director of Crazy Horse Paris Group.
