HOT CIRCUS SIZZLES IN PARIS
The inaugural Hot Circus experience, held at Le Zebre De Belleville, Paris, took place this month past (September 3), with the goal of showcasing the sensual and erotic side of Pole performance and art. In my humble opinion, they achieved and far exceeded this goal.
Still being relatively new to the world of Pole and Aerial, I feel that I have a fresh and unbiased view of all forms of pole (something I pride myself on and intend to maintain during my time in the industry). The artistic sensibility of this event, coupled with the warm and welcoming atmosphere made for an experience not soon to be forgotten. Even as a non-French speaker, the brand of physical comedy and drama on show easily transcended the language barrier.
The brainchild of Doris Arnold, founder and head of Studio Françoise, Hot Circus was a runaway success. The Le Zebre theatre was packed with well-wishers, pole fans and press, all clamouring to see the fresh and exciting offering from Doris and friends.
Performances from a variety of artists was the order of the night, with sensual and artistic performances provided by Doris Arnold, Olga Koda, Geoffroy Letailleur, Prana Ovide-Etienne, Cyd Sailor and Travis Scott.
As a supporter of all forms of Pole, X-POLE was proud to sponsor this event.
On the idea for the event, Doris commented; “I wanted to create something combining physical performance, sensuality, eroticism and strength, to bring a visually stunning experience to our audience. Our mission: to transport you to a crazy world, intriguing and exciting ... This is not a pole competition, this is not a striptease number, it is not a cabaret revue nor a circus ... But it is a bit all this in both a friendly and entertaining atmosphere. In short, a new and spectacular visual experience.”
Performers on the night included:
Lydie Da Silva
The event also marked the one-year anniversary of Studio Françoise; we extend our congratulations for a successful first year and best wishes for the future to Doris and the team at Studio Françoise; Be Strong, Be Sexy, Have Fun!
