Crisis ? What crisis !
The curves are all stirred up! The curves of the stock market that is! But our Crazy businesswoman isn’t one to take it lying down…
This scene from today mocks clichés and offers a unique and irreverent view of the financial crisis that shook the West in 2008.
The news comes to the Crazy
The scene “Crisis? What crisis!” was created by Philippe Decouflé for the show Désirs, inspired by the sub-prime financial crisis of 2008 in the United States.
The French choreographer stages a female president of a multinational corporation who is on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
A game of seduction begins on the legendary Parisian cabaret stage, with the exchange rates of the Paris stock exchange projected against the backdrop. The indices are getting more and more erratic as the clothes start flying off.
Contemporary language and tools
“I tried to contribute to the renewal in in a context of continuity by using the language and tools of today,” said Decouflé to the AFP.
“The Crazy has everything that fascinates me: women, the body, dance. The stage of this cabaret is like a setting for an idea: gorgeous girls naked in high heels and wearing clothes made of light.”
To anticipate the controversy, the director said he respects the spirit defended by Alain Bernardin of the Woman, celebrated at the Crazy Horse, a woman who is never submissive, never denigrated. “She uses her charm to be assertive and be the strongest, by being constantly desirable”.
A striptease number with very modern accents
The costume for this striptease number with very modern accents was created by the Paris fashion and lingerie designer Fifi Chachnil, in collaboration with Ali Mahdavi.
The lights, which adorn the character, are created by Begoña Garcia Navas, a collaborator of Philippe Decouflé, the creator behind this act, set to original music by the composer Fred Pallem.
The projections are created by François Willenz and Mathieu Jurgenson.
