R1BW Christine and the Queens Review – 28/05/2017

As I have said before, Lorde may have been the Queen of Saturday’s performances but Christine and the Queens completely stole the show the day after. Even though I was quite familiar with her tracks, it soon dawned on me that the music is only part of the package.  When you watch Christine and the Queens you are immersed in a world of delicately twisted movements and French discotheque: you are immersed in an experience rather than a sound. From the word go she completely blew me away – from the simple lighting behind her to the impeccably choreographed movements of her five dancers, she took us on an emotional journey that went everywhere from pushing the boundaries of gendered expectations to the victims of Manchester. Clearly the inspiration she takes comes from real-life, and that is the reason why her music is so powerful.
