Exposing Edith: Celebrating the Life of Edith Piaf
A PACked Stage Gig
An award winning cabaret tale of the legendary French star, Edith Piaf.
Direct from critically acclaimed seasons at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Leicester Square Theatre, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Festival of Voices and Auckland International Cabaret Festival, winner of Best Cabaret Adelaide Fringe 2016 and nominated for a Helpmann Award, Exposing Edith charts the tragic life of arguably the greatest French singer of all time, Edith Piaf.
Experience her life, loves and losses through the songs that shot her to stardom including La Vie en Rose, Milord and Non, je ne regrette rien. Created and performed by Michaela Burger (vocals) and Greg Wain (guitar), Exposing Edith is a stunning mix of authentic French chanson and contemporary sounds.
Having explored the undertones of Piaf's vocals and lyrics, Burger and Wain have created their own unique interpretations of Piaf's work, using voice and acoustic guitar and the subtle use of loop, delay and effect pedals.
The songs are punctuated with a collection of extraordinary stories of Piaf's life which are recounted by Burger, who also takes on a multitude of key characters, from Edith's half-sister Momone, to several of her lovers and, of course, Edith Piaf herself.
