Originally produced at Club Med Itapirica, Brazil
Choreographed by Mara Galvaolo
Directed by Yoav Quittner
Club Med Turkoise, TCI, BWI

Tropical! is a Club Med cabaret, originally produced in Brazil. Going in, the choreographer basically wanted me to recreate what had been done at (I think) Itaparica, I naturally balked at this on several levels. One, I didn’t really like it. Two, the other club had three costumiers, to my one (me). Three, I had a different stock and stash to work from. I think that the final product was about evenly divided between pulled, designed/constructed, and frankensteined. I very much abused the feathers and sequins in this show.
