Early Days (1951-1960)
Crazy Horse was founded in 1951 by Alain Bernadin, an amateur
artist and full-time antiques dealer who had long been fascinated
by two seemingly disparate notions - the American Western
movie genre with its mythological saloons and historic legends,
and the beauty of the female form. His first show was
on May 19, 1951, in the basement of a small building
on the avenue George V, near place de l'Alma. It represented
his attempt to break away from the post war fashion strictures
of the Left Bank and the St. Germain des Prés. Although
intrigued by the <> nude shows
being staged by Boris Vian, Bernadin wanted to create
something more striking than the traditional American striptease
acceptable to a wide audience. He played with light and
color projected on a single girl without choreography.
He experimented with strobe-like effects
and other innovations. Some of his dancers became legends
in their own right, and even today there are fond memories
of Doda d'Hambourg and Rita Renoir.
