Feu, the movie

Shot in 3D

“Feu”, the show created by Christian Louboutin, first ever Crazy Horse guest creator, was performed for three months in the spring of 2012 on the stage of the legendary Parisian cabaret.

In this show, the famed inventor of the celebrated red-soled shoes, elevated the Crazy code of aesthetics to new dizzying heights, through four separate numbers, henceforth part of the Crazy Horse legend.

“Feu” was also the opportunity, for the Crazy Horse Paris, to carry out another creative project alongside the stage performance: filming the show in 3D.

The Parisian cabaret, at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies and using them to glorify the female form, had entrusted Bruno Hullin with the making of this film.

Sensual stroll

The French film director created a veritable sensual stroll around the gorgeous bodies of the magnificent dancers as they were performing their choreographies.

In order for the project to succeed, the movie had to be shot in a 1300m2 studio and in total darkness.

All camerawork was done in the same manner as in a feature film.

Dollying in or out, panning or tracking left or right, wide-angle… the Crazy Horse dancers were metamorphosed into movie stars.

Visual production

The main advantage of this film is, without a doubt, the use of 3D technology that allows the audience to see the show like never before.

The expression of an eye, the subtlety of an emotion, the curve of a breast, the twitch of a muscle are all revealed in amazing detail.

“Feu”, the 3D movie event distributed by Côté Diffusion, hit theaters in December of 2012. This was not the first time the Crazy Horse had filmed one of its shows.

In 2009, the Dita Von Teese show was also filmed, yet in 2D, specially produced for the appearances of this goddess of glamour on the stage of the venerable Parisian cabaret.

The Crazy Horse Paris, founded in 1951 by Alain Bernardin, produces visual shows and aims to perpetuate its artistic and creative work by filming and recording it.
