Pascal Rioult's RIOULT Dance NY, accompanied by vocals from Broadway star and TONY nominee Christine Andreas, will offer a brilliant evening of dance and song conjuring Edith Piaf's dramatic, inspiring life, as she rose from the dark streets of Paris to the glamorous lights of Broadway. Backed up by live musicians, Andreas performs Piaf's iconic songs, as RIOULT Dance NY's stellar company bring her story to life with newly created choreography from Founder and Artistic Director Pascal Rioult- who also stars in a featured role.
Founded in 1994, RIOULT Dance NY is an established name in modern dance with a reputation for presenting the sensual, articulate, and exquisitely musical works of Pascal Rioult. RIOULT Dance NY has performed throughout North America including NY City Center, Lincoln Center, American Dance Festival, and the Kravis Center. International touring has brought the company to Rioult's homeland of France for the Cannes International Festival and Paris Opera Bastille, as well as to Bermuda, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and beyond.
Christine Andreas first captured New York City theatre-goers' hearts in the 20th anniversary production of My Fair Lady as Eliza Doolittle (Theatre World Award); followed by the revival of Oklahoma!, as Laurey, working with Billy Hammerstein and Agnes De Mille (TONY Nomination); and On Your Toes as Frankie Frayne, directed by the legendary director George Abbott (TONY Nomination). She last appeared on Broadway as Jacqueline in the Tony/Olivier Award winning production of La Cage Aux Folles with Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge. Andreas has recorded two CDs with Grammy nominated producer Silvestri, which were both selected on USA Today's Top 10 list. She has sung in concert in Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Town Hall, the Kennedy Center Jazz Festival and the Caramoor Festival, among others.
