  • EDITH PIAF AT 100: A celebration of her Centennial

  • Jun 9, 2015 at 4:00pm to Jul 13, 2015 at 5:30pm
  • Location: Drom NYC & the Metropolitan Room
  • Description:

    Come to our new cabaret show telling Piaf’s story through song, circus and burlesque!

    On JUNE 9TH at 8pm (doors at 7pm) and JULY 13TH at 9.30pm (doors at 9pm), I will happily guide you through the decadent world of Edith Piaf using her timeless songs to retell the life of this iconic performer who’ve inspired me so much in becoming an artist. Accompanied by a traditional musette band and multi-disciplinary backup singers, I will recreate the brothels, circuses and nightclubs that created the great Piaf we all know. The performance will last 60-70 minutes.

    2015 marks Edith Piaf’s centennial. ‘La Môme Piaf’, as she was nicknamed, introduced America to the world of ‘Chanson Réaliste’. Her songbook has become classic and still engages audiences worldwide. However, her early life is shrouded in mystery – daughter of a circus performer, childhood in a brothel, blind for years and ‘miraculously’ cured by a pilgrimage St. Therese – these stories and more are brought to life with music, dance

  • GEDDA: Giving Colors a Sense of Clarity

  • Jun 12, 2015 at 6:00am to Jul 2, 2015 at 2:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    The subjects of GEDDA’s paintings are water and the cosmos, and those two worlds meet in images that ground an open airiness with fluidity and a dynamic sense of movement. Working in what she calls “the tradition of lyrical abstraction,” the artist animates her compositions by enhancing the depth and light of each color she uses, making her images glow from within. She also combines painting techniques and textures to strong effect, mixing liquid fields of color and drips of paint with sharply etched lines and rough, energetic brush strokes. These elements come together in works that balance freedom and openness with a tightly organized sense of formal balance.


    Over the course of her career, the artist has gone from making black and white drawings to oil on canvas paintings, to finding a unique style in her current work, done in oils and resin on plexiglass. Sometimes painting on both sides of the clear plexiglass surface, she gives her images a complex, multi-layered presence, making

    Thomas Lilti's Hippocrates, Diary of a French Doctor starring Vincent Lacoste (the French kissers) and Reda Kateb (Zero Dark Thirty, A Prophet) is now playing at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas 

    Closing night of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival Critics’ Week, Hippocrates, Diary of a French Doctor is a darkly comic portrait of a Paris hospital as seen through the eyes of a young intern, Benjamin, played by Vincent Lacoste (Eden), who begins his internship at the hospital ward run by his father.  Confident and determined that he will quickly become a successful doctor, Vincent soon realizes that the reality of the medical world is a lot grimmer than what he had imagined. He is also overshadowed by his co-junior partner Abdel, a foreign doctor, played by Reda Kateb (Lost River, Zero Dark Thirty) who’s obviously more competent than he is but who’s forced to work as an intern because of his immigrant status. When Vincent makes a medical error, his father quickly covers it up but Abdel is not fooled…
