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.
Exposing Edith is a stunning mix of authentic French chanson and contemporary sounds. Having explored the undertones of Piaf’s vocals and lyrics, Michaela Burger and Greg 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.
Songs are punctuated with a collection of extraordinary stories of Piaf’s life that 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.
“Exposing Edith can be summed up in one word – sensational. Fully deserved the standing ovation! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★” Southside Advertiser
“Absolutely stunning, possibly the closest you’ll get to Piaf in this day and age. ” RipitUp
Exposing Edith is part of the Whitehorse Centre 2017 Professional Season.
