The new cabaret experience by Kamel Ouali

Upon producing “L’Oiseau Paradis”, Kamel Ouali, a creative and passionate French choreographer and director, took up the challenge of creating a modern cabaret show that remains faithful to the tradition of Parisian revues.

The Paradis Latin is a mythical and inspiring entertainment venue. Faithfully to the tradition of this magical place, I want to captivate people upon they enter the cabaret, and draw them into a surreal and surprising experience.

His career has been marked by various artistic collaborations in the world of entertainment (Le Roi Soleil, Les Dix Commandements, Cléopâtre, collaborations with Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, etc.) and French television (Star Academy, La France a un incroyable talent).

Twenty years after its show French Cancan at the Folies Bergères, Kamel Ouali went back to his first love: the cabaret. Him and the choreographer Marie-Laure Philippon joined forces to create a new, modern, and surprising French Cancan for “L’Oiseau Paradis”.

Iris Mittenaere, former lead dancer

Iris Mittenaere, Miss France and Miss Universe 2016, joined the troupe of the cabaret as a lead dancer for the launch of the show “L’Oiseau Paradis”.

There were several challenges for me regarding Kamel Ouali's show: the stage, singing, the costumes, the Paradis Latin and the meeting with the public every evening... It was very exciting.

Both beauty queen and showgirl, Iris Mittenaere charmed an international audience during her performances.

An international cast

Throughout the process of creating of “L’Oiseau Paradis”, Kamel Ouali wished to modernize the classic form of cabaret and maintain the DNA of Paradis Latin – the conviviality, the festive atmosphere, the fabled French Cancan and the traditional “all in white” final part. Kamel Ouali looked for multi-talented artists who could act, sing and dance. “I asked a lot of improvisation during these auditions”, he said.

More than 1000 artists were auditioned in Paris and London. Giant auditions that sometimes lasted more than 10 hours and during which dancers, singers, comedians and attractions from all over the world showed their talents.

Nearly thirty exceptional artists were finally selected by Kamel Ouali and his team to go on the stage of Paradis Latin, an exceptional cabaret located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, founded by Napoleon in 1803, and rebuilt by Gustave Eiffel in 1889.
