Crazy Horse

  • to This is a past program

Crazy Horse documents the legendary nude Paris cabaret as it prepares to stage Désirs, a new show by the celebrated choreographer Philippe Decouflé. Shot over the course of 11 weeks, the film showcases the emphasis on elegance and perfectionism and the grueling schedules performers must endure (2011, Dir. F. Wiseman, 134 min).

In conjunction with Tea and Morphine: Women in Paris, 1880 to 1914.
