About this show

Classical technique or sacred dance, street theatre or fashion show? It's impossible to pin down a performance by Francois Chaignaud. Inviting the audience onto the stage to share the experience, he presents song and dance in multiple languages and fantastic costumes. He explains, 'We will take advantage of this intimacy, of this proximity, of this enclosure to enjoy a spectrum of delicacies and outrageous acts. 'It will feel like theyyam dances in Malabar, where the dancers, in wondrous, monumental costumes transform into gods and are also brought closer to the men and women gathered to watch and solicit them. 'Driven by the bewitching rhythms of Ukrainian, Philippine, or Sephardic music, this multi-lingual recital, captured within a costume-sculpture by Romain Brau, is a sinuous mix of dance, of song... and of liquors.'
