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.

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.

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

C’est connu, se faire larguer par son mec à l’âge ou les ovaires rêvent de biberon à tétine multifonctions, c’est la grande déprime assurée. Sauf pour Blanche, qui trouve là l’occasion de tout remettre en question : elle-même, la famille, les amis, les hommes, la politique, le sens de la vie sur terre… Tout quoi ! Tandis que le public enfile son gilet pare balles, Blanche se rend compte qu’elle est allée trop loin… mais il est déjà trop tard.
