Known as the Crazy Girls, they have been the famous Parisian Cabaret’s success for the past 60 years. Open the doors to this iconic site of Parisian nightlife and enter a glamourous, sensual, dreamlike setting, dedicated to the female form in all its beauty. Watch the sensual choreography of the cabaret dancers dressed to the nines with their bright red lipstick and square-cut wigs, perched on the highest of stilettos.
There is nothing vulgar about this ode to feminine beauty, but rather a seductive and cheeky artistic charm. Here, more than anywhere else, visitors are in a temple to sophistication and elegance, where eroticism is often hinted at, but never shown.
The pinnacle of elegance, the Crazy Horse lies within the famous (and very luxurious) "Golden Triangle" in central Paris – near the Champs-Elysées, more precisely on Avenue George V in the 8th district. Head to the cabaret for a 90 minute show of magnificent choreography, décor and lighting.
Giant Jewellery Box
The style of the Crazy Horse has attracted many different creative artists over the years, all of whom were fascinated by the aesthetic genius of the shows: a celebratory atmosphere encased in legendary red velvet and mirrored walls. It almost gives the impression of being a giant giant jewellery box that knows how to sparkle and catch the eye - not only the eye of the audience, but also some of the world’s most famous artists and fashion designers.
In 2015, French choreographer Philippe Decouflé created his breathtaking show, "Désirs." In 2016, to celebrate the 65th birthday of this Parisian nightlife icon, lingerie designer Chantal Thomass decided to dress (and undress!) the Crazy Girls in her show, "Dessous Dessus" (Underneath, On Top).
Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue, Christina Aguilera…
The Crazy Horse style has also been adpoted by other art forms including, for example, singers like Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue, Christina Aguilera, photographer David Lynch, and American strip-tease artist Dita Von Teese, all of whom have held their own shows at the Crazy Horse. All the artists were able to take the chance to express their talents through theater arts.
