Crazy Horse Cabaret invites Christian Louboutin as guest creator
January 19, 2012: The Crazy Horse, which is known to have shows with legends such as Dita Von Teese, Arielle Dombasle and Pamela Anderson, has now announced its first guest creator, which is the shoe creator Christian Louboutin.
The celebrated show designer was invited to give his fresh interpretation to 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 which are inspired by the eclectic worlds of hip hop to art masterpieces, consisting of a personal look at femininity in all its forms. Assisted by Patricia Folly, choreographer and dancer at Le Crazy, he also collaborated with a 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 show will preview on March 4, 2012 and will be on stage till May 31, 2012. In his usual, cheeky style, Mr Louboutin commented, "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."
