Fashion Freak Show comes to us for its London premiere fresh from Paris’ Folies Bergère where it enjoyed a twice extended run. But what’s it about? We asked Gaultier himself this when he came to visit us in London earlier this year, and here’s his response, on the inspiration behind this spectacular like no other.
This is the first time the show has been performed beyond Paris, so what made Jean-Paul Gaultier bring it to London? As he himself explains, this is a city with a special place in his heart, plus he believes it has an appeal to British audience’s true nature.
So, lastly, does Gaultier have any feelings as to what he hopes Southbank Centre audiences may take from his remarkable Fashion Freak Show?
