RIOULT Dance NY
Pascal Rioult’s brilliant evening of dance and song conjures Edith Piaf’s dramatic, inspiring life, as she rose from the dark streets of Paris to the glamorous lights of Broadway. Broadway star Christine Andreas, backed by live musicians, performs Piaf’s iconic songs as RIOULT Dance NY's company brings her story to life - with Pascal Rioult himself in a featured role.
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 Pascal 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.
RIOULT Dance NY’s residency and performance at On Stage at Kingsborough are part of the CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI), which receives major support from The Mertz Gilmore Foundation, the Howard Gilman Foundation, and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Jerome Robbins Foundation, the SHS Foundation, and the Harkness Foundation for Dance. CDI is spearheaded and administered by The Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College. www.cuny.edu/danceinitiative
