As part of Women in Focus, join Chewy She for an immersive show to celebrate their debut single, Je Suis nue il est habillé, mixing the spontaneity of punk with fat, electro bass, delivered with the groove and glamour of disco.

What to expect

Chewy She will be working at Poplar Union to develop a unique immersive show mixing dance, music, physical theatre, fashion, art and comedy together for the release of their first single, part of their debut EP, Run after boyz. The record is an expression of freedom, sex positivity, spirituality, and a dash of feminism.

Garance speaks out loud for all the women and men of today who follow their own desires, disregard the patriarchy and find their own ecstasy. This spirit is best expressed at their live shows, which feature exuberant costume, supreme musicianship, and initiation of all present into the darkly ironical, theatrical, and immersive universe of Chewy She. Having debuted at Silencio in Paris, the band have already performed at Glastonbury festival and collaborated on stage with Mathieu Boogaerts.

The story of the band’s formation, told by bandleader Garance Louis

I dreamt that I was in David Lynch’s club and he told me “ I’ve got something for you”.. I woke up frustrated, not knowing what was it. The day after, in reality, I was in a car with a couple of friends who told me they would be playing at David Lynch’s club a few weeks later, and needed an opening act.

This strange coincidence proved the inspiration for a new and electrifying musical shift – away from the 25-piece orchestral arrangements of Louis’ eccentric folk ensemble ‘Garance and The Mitochondries’ and towards something darker and more compelling.

Chewy She’s ‘Run After Boyz’ marks a drastic change that somehow makes a lot of sense. Chewy She are preparing to release their debut EP, Run After Boyz.
