Choreographer and performer Helle Bach invites you into her personal experience of life as a showgirl at the famed musichall stage Folies Bergere, Paris in the 1990s.

Welcome to a cocktail of long legs, high breasts, feathers, stilettos and fake eyelashes.

Welcome to an everyday life where the body is a tool to portray a stylized image of beauty.

Welcome to the meeting between the real body that is constantly changing, flowing with the passage of time, and the ideal of the beautiful body that reflects the ideas, ideals, dreams and fashions.

Feathers and stilettos is produced with support from the Danish National Arts Council, Aarhus Municipality, Wilhelm Hansen Foundation and Copenhagen Municipality.
