Bijou is full of delightful surprises.
You’re in a café-bar in Paris 1933. A wine, a chat; the music plays… you become aware of a new face in the crowd. A ravaged figure in faded finery and fake pearls, enters. The evening takes an unexpected turn, as ‘Madame Bijou’ former Queen of the Demi-Monde, sees an unflattering photo of herself by Brassai, and unleashes a string of intimate, colourful and shocking memories. Music of Satie, Weill, Hollander, Bruant and many more accompanies her stories and songs, allowing a glimpse into the private, sensual world of a riveting Parisienne.
