Based on Gustave Flaubert’s classic novel Madame Bovary, Doesn’t Everybody Do It In Paris? is a multimedia dance theatre piece that explores the catastrophic outcome of attempting to reconcile the reality of one’s everyday life with idealized notions of romance and glamour. Combining video, live and recorded music and text, and choreography set on untrained dancers, the piece examines, in a non-narrative style, both Emma Bovary’s unchecked fantasies and their eerie echos in the life of the novel’s first English translator – Eleanor Marx Aveling.
