Le Très Bon restaurant, Bungendore
Saturday 15 June 2019 at 6.30pm and Sunday 16 June 2019 at 12 noon
Chrissie Shaw returns with her fascinating cabaret performance about Madame Bijou, transporting you to a café-bar in Paris 1933…. ‘A wine, a chat; the music plays … there’s a new face in the crowd.’
A ravaged figure in faded finery and fake pearls, enters and the evening takes an unexpected turn. ‘Bijou’, former Queen of the Demi-Monde, unleashes a cascade of intimate, colourful memories, taking us backwards in time to the shadows of her youth.’
Bijou survives a hard world by constantly reinventing herself – a young ingénue on the stage of the Paris Varietées, a high-class Courtesan, the hard-bitten Madame of a highly imaginative house of joy, a vulnerable child at the mercy of the adults around her. Bijou (and indeed Chrissie Shaw) emerges triumphant after taking us on a fascinating and moving journey.
