Dragging Piaf @ The Queer Arts Festival
Tenor Frédérik Robert performs as iconic French singer Edith Piaf, accompanied by a silent film directed by Alan Corbishley. Desperate to be loved and understood, Vancouver drag queen Ed becomes obsessed with the tragic life of Edith Piaf, paints himself in her likeness, and much like Edith herself, becomes a creation of the streets. Frédérik has been honing his Piaf persona since 2008, twice performing at QAF, and we are pleased to now present the full-length show. Artist talkback to follow.

Come early, share a drink among friends, and take in QAF's visual arts exhibitions. Bar opens at 5:30.

This event is scent-reduced, and fully wheelchair accessible. Please help us keep this a welcome space for everyone and refrain from wearing scented products while attending QAF events. For a full accessibility audit of the space, visit Radical Access Mapping Project.
