Summer Time 2014 is a celebration host by Le Comité du Faubourg Saint-Honoré which happened on Tuesday June 17th 2014. It is the twinning between 2 famous streets, Le Faubourg du Saint-Honoré in Paris and the 5th avenue in New York City.
During this special night Le Faubourg du Saint-Honoré and others street near by was turned into the Big Apple. It is an exclusive event, which celebrate the 50th anniversary of the twinning of le Faubourg Saint-Honoré and The 5th avenue.
This year edition was a big success, thanks to the 78 prestige brands that agreed to host a cocktails parties during the event. This occasion, the surrounding was set as if it was 1960’s in New York.
The event was directed by the very talented duo artists, Carine Charaire and Olivier Casamayou. They lead their troupe, “I could never be a dancer”, and use dance as a visual and conceptual element of their work for this event.
Summer Time was all about fun, with splendid choreographies, music sets. The 35 dancers reinterpreted classic choreographies from the famous musical West Side Story and Grease. The guys were the “Jets” and the girls were the “bad girls” or « pink ladies ». There were also food trucks at the event, other shows and a lot more.
For me i can not wait for the next year edition and what kind of joy it will bring for us in the up coming one.
