It’s not long now until a small piece of Parisian glamour and excitement comes to Canberra – Crazy Horse Paris‘s world-famous burlesque show Forever Crazy is visiting the Canberra Theatre Centre from the 4th October. Think sleek bobs, red lips, heels (and not much else!) and 10 of the best burlesque dancers the world has to offer. It’s a great excuse to go a little out there with your evening attire and spend an evening with the company that has guest-starred Dita von Teese and collaborated with the likes of Christian Louboutin, Miuccia Pradda, Roberto Cavalli and Karl Lagerfeld on costume and shoe design. Oh, just a few small names…
Le Crazy Horse Paris was founded over 65 years ago and still holds its importance as a piece of iconic French cabaret. It’s chic, glamorous and, yes, a little bit shocking. The 15 acts celebrate femininity and the strengths and uniqueness of each dancer, pronounced “the sexiest show EVER!” by Ellen von Unwerth. I was astounded to find out that the dancers go through 500 litres of body makeup, 300 red lipsticks, 720 pairs of eyelashes and 2500 pairs of stockings (fun fact). Just the necessities in life. It’s inspired me to just go a little crazy and use that red lipstick a little more. (Make sure to scroll down to the end to see their full ad!)
Forever Crazy is showing at the Canberra Theatre Centre 4-7 October 2017.
Tickets are still available at www.canberratheatrecentre.com.au, starting at $79.
