The first "Guest Creator" in the history of the most avant-garde Cabaret in Paris ...
Having welcomed many "Guest Creatures" onto its legendary stage, notably Dita Von Teese, Arielle Dombasle and Pamela Anderson, the Crazy Horse is pleased to announce the first "Guest Creator" in its history: Christian Louboutin.
The celebrated originator of the red sole was invited to give his fresh interpretation of the Crazy show, which he describes as "an iconic Paris monument, a monument to dance, a fantastic, modern idea of the celebration of Women for Women".
Christian Louboutin has directed four original and unique tableaux, inspired by the eclectic worlds of hip hop to art masterpieces, which constitute a personal look at femininity in all its forms. Assisted by Patricia Folly, choreographer and dancer at Le Crazy, he also collaborated with a diverse team of distinguished artists, including David Lynch and Swizz Beatz, who both composed original music; Gilles Papain, video designer; and Youssef Nabil, who created the poster for the show.
Entitled FEU (fire) the result of this remarkable collaboration will preview on Sunday, March 4th 2012 and will remain in the repertoire of the celebrated Paris institution until May 31st2012.
This creative venture is a first for Louboutin who has always found great inspiration in the cabaret and its dancers.
"Christian Louboutin and Crazy Horse Paris are symbols of Parisian life whose worlds know no borders; symbols of the world of creativity, wonder and modernity. They share the same sources of inspiration – Women, of course, but also the world around them – and both are exceptionally skilled at producing unique and surprising creations. This is why Christian Louboutin was the natural choice as our first Guest Creator", Andrée Deissenberg, Managing Director of Crazy Horse Paris Group.
"I am interested in all things that celebrate and enhance the female form. Because of what I do, for these numbers I have focused on the lower half of the body, rather than the top. The language of legs can express any and every feeling, and without giving too much away, the body becomes the Flame."
