Imagine sitting in a chair at a café in Paris and what you experience there. The sounds of Paris presented through the use of classic melodies from the early 19th century and famous composers from France, as well as popular modern music and movies that depict a strong resemblance of French culture. The use of the accordion throughout the show and the tie to the beautiful song, “La Vie En Rose” acts as our musical thread, which is where we begin, on the streets of Paris, taking it all in.
The show will display a variety of uses of the number “2”, which in French, when translated, is deux. The title deuX acts as the visual and musical motivation for the theme. The use of duets and guard spinning two props will occur. You will often hear two pieces of music or two melodies occurring simultaneously.
