Discover “Close” the first immersive creation in France

For the very first time in France, Big Drama presents a totally sensory creation, which immerses us in the Paris of the 20s: Close. Far from a classic show where actors perform on stage in front of spectators, the concept of the immersive show Close is based on a sensory adventure where the boundary between the stage and the room no longer exists. A 360° interactive experience carried by a troupe of actors trained in these new techniques. In this story, the hero is you! You have the power to personalize your experience so eavesdrop as you see fit, search every corner to influence the course of events or choose to be a discreet observer… There's something for everyone. The pitch of this creation of a new genre? Paris, 1918. As the war drags on, artists, revolutionaries and outcasts come together to party at the Phénix. In this decadent cabaret, it's the men who do the make-up and the women who order! Here there is no war...

Since the launch of its magazine “L'Oiseau Paradis” on May 2, the Paradis Latin has been full! Zoom on this superb show where we find the ex-Miss Universe Iris Mittenaere as a review leader.

This mythical cabaret of the 80s and 90s is reborn from its ashes, offering a new revue for 9 months of performances, 6 evenings a week. The star of this new show? Iris Mittenaère.

Since April 27, the Funambule theater has presented a new play 'Un Rossignol chantait', by Robert Lamoureux.

The most famous cabaret in the world celebrates its 130th anniversary!

Since its opening on October 6, 1889, the Moulin Rouge has crossed the ages and remains the scene of the most beautiful Parisian evenings whose fame and prestige are well established! The beautiful history of this cradle of the Music Hall, a source of inspiration for many artists, has very often been highlighted by the 7th art. We remember in particular the film 'French Cancan' directed in 1954 by Jean Renoir, 'Moulin Rouge' by John Huston in 1952, or the mythical feature film 'Moulin Rouge' by Baz Luhrmann (2001) starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.
