Simone's Boudoir

"I am incapable of conceiving infinity, and yet I do not accept finity." Simone de Beauvoir

In a way, Simone (de Beauvoir, some would have guessed...) has got nothing to do with a boudoir conversation. The boudoir conversations had already moved into the cafés by the time she was having them.

In the spirit of the salon we invite the dance makers and dance lovers alike to engage in discussion (and discourse) by provoking monthly informal topic-centered talks with selected guests. It will be about dance but also the world in general - isn't the contemporary body so viscerally linked to the world we live in?

So, boudoir is for the intimacy of it - ideas circulate more freely in a familiar warm environment; Simone is for the sharpness and freedom of ideas. We will aim at a sort of deliciously sophisticated French over-intellectualism but we will mix it with the coolness, irreverence and optimism of the Australian style.

Let us reassure you - Simone's Boudoir will be kinky, but only intellectually speaking.

Time: 5.30pm to 7.30pm
