To a Toxic tune, the legs multiply and bodies metamorphose into stunning and sensual visions.
This hypnotic play of mirrors and reflections has a way of unsettling your perceptions and disturbing your senses.
The first creation staged by the choreographer Philippe Decouflé, when creating the show “Désirs” in 2009, “Upside Down” is a hypnotic and mesmerizing scene.
It is a perfect representation of the collaboration between the Crazy Horse and Decouflé.
The art direction of the number was created by the Iranian designer Ali Mahdavi.
He was called by the cabaret’s management to refocus the development of the new show “Désirs” around the codes of the house.
The DNA of the Crazy Horse
A student of American choreography, and known for his work with mirrors and the creation of double images in projections, Philippe Decouflé wanted to pay tribute to his mentor Alwin Nikolais.
With “Upside Down”, the director of the show “Désir” then created a graphic and aesthetic scene, which shows the DNA of the most avant-garde of cabarets, the Crazy Horse.
An stunning scene
While the version of the song as sung to much success by Britney Spears resonates, in a sensual reinterpretation by the Franco-Israeli singer Yael Naim, you will fall over backwards before these stunning reflections.
Shapely and elegant, enhanced by the light effects unique to the fabulous shows of the Crazy Horse Paris, these silhouettes reproduced to infinity will eventually do more than make you lose your head!
Collaboration with Beyoncé
This number, which has become a key part of the show “Désirs”, was reprised by Beyoncé in her video “Partition. In it, the American star reproduces the famous and stunning footwork of the Crazy Girls in a video made in the legendary Parisian cabaret.
The shoes for this scene were created by the famous shoemaker of the red sole, Christian Louboutin, and the costumes are the work of the Crazy Horse workshop, under the direction of Roselyne Diouy.
