Vestal’s Desire: Oriental reverie
The most entrancing act of the history of Crazy Horse Paris! These musings are accompanied by Allah’s Holiday, which Rudolph Friml composed in 1917. It was the hallmark of Crazy Horse for a long time. The five vestals express their desire in this reverie: During this dance, they sacrifice their ancestral modesty on the altar of sensuality. This iconic scene is part of the repertoire created by Alain Bernardin. It is an oriental reverie inhabited by divine creatures. Their hips sway endlessly, the red and green lighting comes and goes . . . The yearning brass music will soothe you, leaving you delightfully bewitched.
Appearances and disappearances
The dancers are particularly enigmatic in this scene. Dressed in red and green lighting, they appear and disappear into the obscurity, vanishing behind the images of vestals. The choreography that the dancers perform for Vestal’s Desire is incredibly technical. With their swirling hips desynchronized from their upper bodies, it is terribly mesmerizing. Their arms draw hieroglyphics, their swaying hips are reminiscent of the ripples of the sacred crocodiles of the Nile, and their graceful bearing echoes the grandeur of the Great Sphinx of Giza.
This evening, don’t bother deciphering the body language of the artists. Just let yourself be drawn into the perpetual round of their exceptional curves. But beware: When the curtain falls, this act continues to bewitch. You may see Vestal’s Desire just once, but you’ll never forget it. Its irresistible charm slips under your skin and is forever impressed upon your retinas. We promise you that Vestal’s Desire will have you coming back to Crazy Horse Paris! Rest assured: These goddesses from a distant land will fuel the sacred fire of the temple of glamor.
