contemporary circus company

Paris De Nuit takes its audience into the roaring variety life of the 30's filled with its voluptuous desires and beauty. Revealing illusionary moments from the lives of prostitutes and peddlers, down and outs and illicit lovers who lived on the edges of society. An evening of lust, love and loneliness inspired by the characteristic world of the famous Hungarian photographer, Brassaï. Stunning circus artists, dancers and musicians are bringing the decadent but loveable secret Paris nights in the 1930's to life.

The show is staged with the audience seated at tables around and on stage bringing the performers as close to the spectators as possible. These special tables were designed to be functioning as circus equipment, so while drinking your glass of champagne an artiste might be doing a handstand above you.

All scenes of the show are inspired by the cultural legacy of Brassaï's photographs that captured the most unique and daring moments of the Paris night. Discover the hidden sides of Montmartre, where Picasso, Henry Miller, Modigliani, Josephine Baker and Brassaï would sink into the shadows of the night. Exceptional jazz musicians, singers, dancers and our stunning circus artists will bring a unique experience alive, the secret Paris you have always wanted to know.
