Crazy Horse Paris comes to Badrutt's Palace Hotel, St. Moritz

Crazy Horse Paris comes to Badrutt's Palace Hotel, St. Moritz
On Friday March 7, 2014 Badrutt’s Palace Hotel will hold two performances of the classic Parisian revue theatre show Forever Crazy, with 10 Crazy Girls executing unique and sensuous choreography. Combined with stunning lighting effects, original music and daring outfits, the latest highlight in the series In Concert@Badrutt’s Palace appeals to all the audience’s senses.

The founder of the Crazy Horse cabaret, Alain Bernardin, was fascinated by American showgirls and women in general. He was driven by a single idea - to make feminine beauty and artistic creation his focus. Over the years he developed his own particular style. This includes the tradition upheld to this day that each dancer is christened with her own unique stage name before her first Le Crazy performance. So the troupe is made up of names such as Shiny Shadow, Loa Vahina and Lila Magnetic. 60 years after the successful cabaret show began, Le Crazy is always reinventing itself and celebrating femininity in all its forms.

Forever Crazy cabaret

Forever Crazy consists of a selection of the legendary cabaret’s best tableaux: certain acts such as Peek-a-Boo or Leçon d’Erotisme are part of Alain Bernardin’s classic repertoire while others like Upside Down and Scanner are new creations by the French star choreographer Philippe Decouflé. Forever Crazy is the result of a collaboration of several highly acclaimed creators under the vision and guidance of Andrée Deissenberg. The artistic director of the show is Québécois Dick Walsh and the music is produced by Mirwais, among others, who has also produced two albums for Madonna.

Crazy Horse Paris has been hailed in the international press as “an unbelievable dream” (El Mundo), “visual pleasure” (El Pais) und “a feast for the senses” (De Morgen). Numerous celebrities are self-confessed fans of the Crazy Show, such as Naomi Watts (“What a beautiful show!”), Michelle Pfeiffer (“We all loved the show!”), Steven Spielberg (“Magique!”), Boris Becker (“What a great vibe”) and Jean-Paul Gaultier (“I am crazy about Le Crazy, always and more than ever…”).
