Celebrating 65 years of Parisian Glamour and inspired by the endless theme of femininity and sophistication, Australian audiences will experience the tantalizing cultural phenomenon of Crazy Horse Paris for the first time, when Forever Crazy high kicks its way to Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Canberra from 8 August.
Featuring the best of acts from the legendary Cabaret, Forever Crazy consists of a series of highly aesthetic and visual tableaus presented by a multicultural cast of ten stunningly beautiful and classically trained dancers clad only in textured lighting and projection.
The effect is so stunning that it is hard to determine where skin ends and the reflections begin. The result is a unique show that engages the mind as much as the eye! A truly tantalizingly Parisian cultural phenomenon not to be missed!
Forever Crazy was conceived in 1951 in tribute to Alain Bernardin, the founder of Crazy Horse Paris. It fully preserves the cabaret’s artistic heritage while adding a touch of modernity, humour and sophistication. On the cutting edge of art and entertainment and presents itself as a unique kaleidoscope of beauty, grace, passion and precision, Forever Crazy consists of distinct choreographed acts, among them legendary Crazy Horse ‘classics’.
Since its inception, Crazy Horse Paris has acquired an impeccable reputation for presenting women in an incomparable, sensual and sophisticated way. Its rich artistic legacy is recognized worldwide, especially among creators, artists and designers.
Performances are accentuated by original music and stylish costumes created by world-renowned French fashion designers including Paco Rabanne, Loris Azzaro, Karl Lagerfeld, Emanuel Ungaro, and Azzedine Alaia. Celebrity shoe creator Christian Louboutin has personally designed the dancer’s iconic red-soled shoes, making Forever Crazy a night of world-class opulence.
Over the past 65 years, Crazy Horse Paris shows have drawn over 15 million patrons, among them numerous celebrities over and over again, including Elizabeth Taylor, President John F. Kennedy, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Jean Paul Gaultier, Pedro Almodovar, Sting, Beyoncé, Rihanna… just to name a few.
