Floanne: Edith Piaf Alive and Living in New York
Show DescriptionFrench singer and actress Floanne recounts the Piaf story. This authentic ‘chanteuse’ and farm girl opens the door to her culture, by taking a closer look at the legendary ‘Little Sparrow’ —with that husky, mournful voice so popular in the 1940’ and 50’s. The performance is a culturally rich and moving presentation that will make you smile, with tunes transporting you to other times and places.
Yes, both Floanne and Edith Piaf will be attending the rendez-vous in a medley of vintage tunes from their native France… with a modern twist. She will embody the legend, interpreting the melodies from her point of view as a child, imagining Piaf’s characters coming to life. Down to earth, sensual and bohemian as her beloved Edith, Floanne will make you discover her poignant music and share her unconventional life.
