Exhibition: Pop and song costumes

September 19, 2016

The Centre National du Costume de Scène (=National Center for Stage Costumes) stages 100 years of “chansons”, or songs, through its most emblematic costumes. After contemporary dance, the circus, the opera and the theatre, the CNCS explores another form of performing arts to highlight the close connections between singers and their costumes, as well as the reciprocal influence, between fashion and music. Stage costumes as emblematic as Josephine Baker’s banana skirt are gathered in 13 rooms. This thematic circuit embraces operette as well as ”chansons” and much more.
