  • 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

  • French Theatre Summer Camps

  • Jul 5, 2015 to Jul 31, 2015
  • Location: Brooklyn and Manhattan
  • Description:

    L’Atelier Théâtre propose des cours aux amateurs de théâtre français de New York.

    Les élèves y apprennent à prendre la parole en public, à s’exprimer avec passion. Ils y découvrent le plaisir de la langue à travers le jeu. Les élèves bilingues y trouvent en particulier un moyen d’améliorer ou de perfectionner leur maîtrise du français en empruntant un chemin d’accès ludique à la langue. Pour les adultes, les cours de l’Atelier sont l’occasion de se détendre, de s’amuser et de travailler sur le répertoire français. Nous montons des spectacles en fin de cycle qui sont l’occasion de partager le travail accompli sur l’année ou sur la session.

    Cet été, nous proposons des ateliers intensifs au mois de juillet pour enfants, ados et adultes. Nous proposons des jeux, et activités théâtrales et travaillons sur des scènes du répertoire et de comedia dell’arte. Les élèves présentent les scènes en fin de cycle.
