Twelve dancers embody Edith Piaf in Mauro Bigonzetti’s homage to the unforgettable chanteuse who made history as the “Sparrow of Paris”.

Bigonzetti attentively reproduces episodes from the lif of this exceptional woman without descending into clichés or attempting to “process“ biographical details.

In his vivid and seemingly fairytale-like method of storytelling, which is also evident from his choice of music, Bigonzetti traces “Piaf’s perfume”. The end result is a rousing declaration of love for the protagonist.
