Inspired by the recent scandal involving the French president and actress Julie Gayet, Femme Fatale is a poetic performance about the art of seduction.
In a setting of antique frames and lights, Marie Walburg Plouviez changes body shapes, faces and hair, making references to several feminine icons, and denounces the representation of the female body in our society.
Award winning company Carte Blanche launches into a new creation this April 2014. In the genre of French cabaret, this one-woman show tells the story an expert in love, seduction and romance. She reveals her stories, her victories and defeats as a woman in love with power. Steeped in magic, song, text, dance and video, this show is an ode to seduction, taking the audience into a visual world of fantasies.
"Some cabaret full of french sensuality "à la française", full of wit, mixing languages on stage, as well as theater, dance and video... what a pleasure to see some ballsy burlesque!" (--Delphine Liénard, audience member)
