Event in PARIS
2011 to the
The new equestrian performance of Bartabas
This new Bartabas show is burning, macabre, aerial and vibrant. The influence are Mexico and its very special bond with the dead, Basquiat, Matisse and Posada serve as inspiration for the setting, the drums of the chinchineros, the South American brass bands and the Barbarian organs make up the music and.
Based on the festive representation of death in Mexico, Calacas launches its macabre dance at full speed, in a perpetual race. Horses are seen at the same time as messengers, as guardian angels and as soul carriers.
Bartabas invites us to take part in its frantic race, where chevaliers and musicians try to touch the highest skies.

The arrondissements are layed out in the form of a spiral and turning clockwise. There is a direct relationship between the last two numbers in the Paris zip codes and the arrondissements. For example, an address with a zip code of 75012 (all Paris zip codes start with 750) is found in the 12th arrondissement, 75004 is in the 4th arrondissement.
