Self described as “Cabaret for Parisians”, and toying with the popularity of cabaret in commercial film and tourist destination, Mike Bouchet created an immersive environment, which includes various motifs, paintings, sculptures, and 3 hour dinner event at the Galerie Azzedine Alaïa. Every element of the performance was conceived by the artist: dialogue, music, choreography, set design, dinner menu, costumes, lighting, … even the waiters actions. “MR2” engaged with the romantic notions of Parisian cabaret, contemporary culture, and the meaning of life entertainment for artists, performers and audience alike.
This unique performance was a 3 hour spectacle with actors, dancers, musicians and other performers: an actual cabaret. After the event, the space was opened to the public in which the remains of the performance was be left for the gallery visitors to see.
