The Crazy Horse cabaret – also commonly referred to as Le Crazy – was founded in 1951 in Paris by Alain Bernardin, an avant-garde artist, passionate admirer of women and the female form. Fascinated by American show girls and the United States in general, he was driven by a single idea: to make artistic creation and women the focus of his cabaret.
Over the years, Alian Bernardin developed a unique and highly recognizable artistic signature.
Everyday of the year, the cabaret’s reputation and peerless prowess at exalting the female form attract an international as well as Parisian audience – pleasing women and men alike. The fundamental codes of the house were jealously retained after the death of its creator, leaving Crazy Horse Paris with the legacy of being a temple of Parisian nightlife, with a strong and distinctive image.
Each of his acts was conceived as a tableau with its own storyline, combining classically trained dancers with perfect, arched bodies dressed primarily in lights, with original choreography, sets, projections, and the latest musical and fashion trends.
