No, no regrets

No, no regrets

Edith Piaf is one of the more lasting myths of the French and world music. Born literally in the street, she developed a carree as singer and composer that took her to be a world figure of excepcional relevance. This show is a recreation of the historic recitals of the Olympia intercut with stories and anecdotes of her life that reflect her deep love for the music, for the live and for the men. She lived her life always on the limits, defying everything and risking everything. She lived as she sang: forcing her little body to the extreme of her posibilities. And she didn’t regret

Édith Piaf's Untold Story

Find Me a New Way to Die

‘Every damn fool thing you do in this life, you pay for.’ Édith Piaf was one of 20th-century France’s brightest stars, an international sensation, and since her death in 1963 has become a legendary figure. Her life story is so compelling that it has become difficult to separate the fact from the fiction, thanks to a wealth of stories, plays, films and biographies designed to lionize: her birth on the pavement of Rue de Belleville 72 on a pile of coats; being raised in a brothel; her role in the French resistance; the near misses with death; the money, the men, the moods, the drugs, the fame. Shrouded by these stories, the ‘real’ Édith Piaf is often indistinguishable from the legend. Following on from his two bestselling biographies of Édith Piaf, David Bret, in her centenary year, has written an account of the singer’s life which centres around previously unpublished interviews he conducted with her friends, lovers, colleagues and songwriters. For the first time, Bret is in a position to reveal the material that was too controversial to publish whilst the interviewees were still alive. This new book will mean a significant revision to the Piaf myth.

Camus, a Romance

Camus, a Romance

Elizabeth Hawes, from the writing of her college honors thesis on Albert Camus, began a forty-year quest to create a portrait of Camus as a man and writer. She chronicles her own experiences as she followed in his footsteps, visiting the places in which he'd lived and worked, and meeting his friends and family.
