Taboo, Franco Dragone’s New Show at the City of Dreams
July 18, 2012 | BY Tim Cheung
At an exclusive preview of his new show at City of Dreams, Franco Dragone tells Hong Kong Tatler what naughty injections he’s included in his newest cabaret
No doubt, the title of Dragone's new show, Taboo: The Show Naughty and Naughtier, asks for a double take. For those who are unfamiliar with the new show at City of Dreams, Taboo, encompasses audacious performances such as flamenco dance, sword-swallowing act, aerial hoops and borderline nudity. But a circus performance is only one of the artistic facets the cabaret incorporates, explains creative director, Franco Dragone, who also directed and created The House of Dancing Water, the permanent show at City of Dreams.
“We try to explore what naughty could mean in a cabaret,” explains Dragone. It is an experiment to find the right fusion of cabaret, circus performance and dancing for Macau, according to Dragone. Water and special effects seen in The House of Dancing Water are replaced by fire and a more intimate show that connects performers with the audience.
In the video above, we bring you our exclusive footage of the show’s debut on June 28, as well as an interview with Dragone where he explains his inspiration for the new show and why Taboo stands apart from the rest.
Taboo: The Show Naughty and Naughtier is on a limited run till September 15, 2012, performances take place every Wednesday to Saturday at 10pm at City of Dreams’ Club Cubic, Macau.
