The Company Carte Blanche will present its new show at NOHspace from April 8 to 17, 2014. Last year, the young company was at Fort Mason with its unexpected and singular Ophelia. We are invited to stay in an ultra feminine realm with Femme Fatale, performed by Marie Walburg Plouviez an directed by Charline Formenty, the French duo behind the San Franciscan company.
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.
