Sparking a scandal fifteen years ago when it was first performed in Paris at the Festival d’Automne, No Paraderan takes the opposite stance to the famous Parade, the total spectacle designed in 1917 by Jean Cocteau, Erik Satie, Pablo Picasso and Léonide Massine for the Ballets Russes. Here, the seven dancers turn the argument on its head, refusing to dish up a spectacle. Dressed up for a gala, the protagonists spend the evening in front of a curtain that will never open. This eminently subversive piece on desire and frustration, described at the time as a “fraud” by Le Figaro and a “bad joke” by Le Monde, has become almost mythical. In a time when the society of the spectacle is turning to buffoonery, it’s time to dust off the tuxedos!
