Exposing Edith POSTPONED

In the interest of our community & the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, Exposing Edith has been postponed.  
 
Mildura Arts Centre presents
Exposing Edith

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.

Libbi Gorr, ABC Melbourne, called it ‘Sublime’, Glam Adelaide said it was ‘more than worthy of the standing ovation’, Rip it Up wrote ‘absolutely stunning and possibly the closest you’ll get to Piaf in this day and age’ and The Age described Burger as ‘a blazing life force’.
