Are you ready to be seduced? Crazy Horse Paris, the most avant-garde cabaret that has been seducing a Parisian audience for years has arrived to tantalise Londontown. Forever Crazy is set to be an artistic masterpiece staged in a new purpose-built venue on the South Bank.
For the London premiere during Fashion Week, you can expect to see a seductive blend of eroticism and innovative choreographed dance fused with high fashion appeal including custom-designed Christian Louboutin shoes, corset queen Poupie Cadolle and previous collaborations with designers London’s Mark Fast as well as Karl Lagerfeld, Emmanuel Ungaro, and Azzedine Alaia.
Celebrating femininity, sensuality and creativity, Forever Crazy was conceived as a tribute to Alain Bernardin, the founder of the Crazy Horse. It fully preserves the cabaret’s artistic heritage while adding a touch of modernity, humour and sophistication. The show consists of distinct choreographed acts, among them legendary Crazy Horse “classics” as well as new, original creations by French star choreographer Philippe Decouflé… A series of ten aesthetic tableaus performed by a troupe of dazzling dancers; their performances are accentuated by stylish costumes, original music and spectacular, high-definition projection and lighting effects. While performing they are bathed in richly coloured and textured lights that are so stunning that it is hard to determine where skin ends and the reflections begin.
“London is a bustling world capital for fashion and entertainment it therefore seemed obvious that one day we present a show here – today we finally have an opportunity. In addition, since over thirty years, every single Crazy Horse Paris show in the world opens with the iconic act “God Save Our Bareskin”, which features Royal Horse Guards with a twist. We can’t wait to present it to English audiences, just a few miles down the road from Buckingham Palace.” Andrée Deissenberg, Le Crazy Horse Managing Director.
A symbol of Parisian life, art, fashion and sensuality, Forever Crazy showcases the best of Le Crazy’s six decades of ground-breaking entertainment in an exceptional 90 minute show on the cutting edge of art and entertainment and presents itself as a unique kaleidoscope of beauty, grace, passion and precision.
Celebrating the awe-inspiring heritage that has made Crazy Horse a household name, all of the style, glamour, sophistication and mystique of the Paris venue will be recreated inside an antique Belgium mirrored Spiegel tent. The intimate venue will accommodate a maximum of 450 guests in plush cabaret style seating, and will be equipped with four bars, a large reception area, and all the trimmings you’d expect on a first-class night out.
