Save the date: October 2, 2018, the most whimsical fashion designer of his generation arrives on the stage of the music hall with a show half pop - half fashion!
The catwalks of Haute-Couture fashion shows are no longer enough! In 2018, Jean-Paul Gaultier invites himself on the stage of the Folies Bergères for an exuberant show halfway between musical revue and fashion show. His name: " Fashion Freak Show ".
On the program: 50 years of pop culture reviewed and corrected through the eyes and the life of the enfant terrible of fashion. "This show is the story of my life, the things I have lived, seen and claimed, and also stories that I have never told," says the creator. To make this kid's dream come true, Jean-Paul Gaultier turned to director Tonie Marshall (Venus Beauty Institute) to help direct and choreograph Marion Motin (Christine & The Queens and Madonna) to imagine together a punchy scenography.
Thought like a diary, the show will pay homage to all those who inspired it: Pedro Almodovar and Luc Besson for the cinema, Madonna and Mylène Farmer for the music, Angelin Preljocaj for the dance without forgetting granny Garrabé, his grandmother , whose coquetry would be at the origin of his vocation!
"I'm coming up with new themes, like cosmetic surgery and its creators, or the vanity fair of social networks, that inspires me with so many new outfits, clothes can tell so much, tell their time, report to femininity and masculinity, ambiguities, sexualities, differences, borders ".
Glamorous, weird, crazy and eccentric, this " Fashion Freak Show "promises more than 2 hours of speed and transgressive show punctuated by a soundtrack based on pop, rock, punk, disco and funk and the presence of fifteen artists on stage ( dancers, actors and circus artists).
Info good plan: performances will begin in preview from September 18th. The time for all the troupe to break in ... and the opportunity to grab one of his 14 sessions, announced cheaper than others!
