Ooh la la as Paris takes over Aarhus

September 2nd, 2014 3:29 pm| by admin

For one week only, as part of the Aarhus Festival, Herman’s will be transformed into a nightclub inspired by the likes of the Moulin Rouge, Lido Paris, and César Palace Paris.

As the topless women and feathered costumes take over, sit back and enjoy the Night Cabaret show, which this year features dancers flown in from Paris, comedy, magic and acrobatics.  

Moulin De Paris is one of several events running at Aarhus Festuge this year, which includes a gig by local stand-up comedians, as well as an array of music and dance.

The Diary of a Madman

With only a single person on stage, the balance between realism and illusion, and also limitations and freedom, is explored. Through a moving and direct monologue, the audience is made aware of the Madman’s bizarre thoughts.
