Born in the black ghetto of Saint Louis, Missouri, USA, and married at the age of 13, young Joséphine arrived in France and became the icon of Paris in the Roaring Twenties. A dazzling artist with extraordinary dancing and singing talents, she was the precursor of hip hop. She joined the resistance. In this show, we meet her partners (Sydney Bechet, Jean Gabin), her lovers (Paul Colin, Pépito), her husbands (Willie Baker, Jo Bouillon) and the heroes who, like her, would not hesitate to put their lives in danger to save Jews and thwart Nazi plans. She campaigned all her life against racial segregation, joining Martin Luther King, adopting 12 children of all origins and creating her rainbow tribe.

Cirque Phénix

The Circus Phénix of Paris presents a Cuban show with 50 acrobats, dancers & musicians who perform 12 colourful scenes, giving a hybrid identity to this creation between a musical & a genuine circus show (without animals). Rigor & technicality inspired sometimes from Russians & Chinese are sublimated by the tropical joy of life irradiating these performances.

This musical pays a tribute to Billie Holiday with her twenty most beautiful songs. If Duke Ellington and Artie Shaw let her sing blues and love, Billy Holiday is also known for fighting against segregation and alcohol.
