By sheer force of will, Toulouse-Lautrec turned his disability into a superpower. At a time when the only acceptable designation for persons with disabilities was FREAK, Toulouse-Lautrec used his unique appearance to his advantage. It allowed him to disappear into a crowd or the corners of a bedroom, seeing others without being seen.
This 60 minutes play is divided into 5 scenes which enthrall of ‘La Belle Époque’ through the artist’s eye. The energetic and dazzling can-can dancers in the cabaret rooms of Moulin Rouge and his journey from being a disabled child to becoming one of the most famous artists in the history of Paris.
His observations lingering through the streets of Montmartre and the sadness he feels for his mother are some of the strong elements presented in the play. The artistic concept of the performance mainly reflects upon everyone searching for the true meaning of beauty in life and figuring it out as we go.

WHO'S BEHIND THIS?
We are a group of 3 professionals who are thoroughly inspired by the works of Henri Toulouse. He was a major alibi/participant of the post-impressionist era.Toulouse-Lautrec's remarkable observations of people on the margins of society almost certainly stem from his status as an outsider, which was established because he suffered from a congenital illness that weakened his bones. At his full height, Toulouse-Lautrec was 5 feet tall, with the upper body of a man and the legs of a child.The crooners, dancers, acrobats, and prostitutes with whom he socialized were his adopted family. He identified with them, and there is every indication that he saw them as equals. Toulouse-Lautrec's early passion for physical activity was channeled directly into his art. This contagious excitement can be seen physical energy being transposed into his art.
