Before Cabaret ?Cabaret-2

The first cafe-concerts are born at the Belle Epoque*. The cabaret is a place where you can drink and eat at a show. The cabaret was a place of debauchery and provocation, they allow people to slip away from the real world during show time.

As the first World War and economic crisis begin, cabaret directors are forced to raise their prices: cabaret raises their reputation. Today, they offer high quality drinks, dishes and gastronomy. Their shows attract the most talented artists.

Éroticism, sensuality, sophistication and elegance are the trademark of those burlesque shows that invite the audience to escape the real world for a fairy one, and erases this old reputation of debauchery.

* End of 19th century to 1914

The perception of Hippy style

In the sixties in the USA, a new style was created called hippy. This style was created during that babyboomer period (when a lot of babys were born) after the war.

The hippy’s didn’t want traditional values which were the life style of their parents and the society in general .

They didn’t like authority, they prefered equality.

They were considered like « rebelles » by society.

They dressed in a way which showed their freedom and simplicity. They dind’t want to follow the style of past generations.
