Christine And The Queens 'La Vita Nuova' by Colin Solal Cardo
Colin Solal Cardo's latest collaboration with Héloïse Letissier, aka Christine and the Queens, is an ambitious short film bringing to life the singer and producer's new EP La Vita Nuova.
Shot entirely within the l’Opéra National de Paris, this is an epic visual realisation of the struggles she has to go through to achieve her unique pop persona. And through that process, she encounters and struggles with a devilish creature - 'The Fauna', played by Félix Maritaud.
The film contains blistering performances - and brilliant choreography by the legendary Ryan Heffington - as Letissier works through the building, from the roof, to backstage with her company of dancers, to onstage, assuming different characters thoughout.
Finally, in a big production co-starring Caroline Polachek, a new, fiercer 'Chris' is born. And she is taking no prisoners...
