Their Eyes Are On The Sparrow

In 1962, Édith Piaf was booked to perform a string of shows at the Paris Olympia. This was to be her last engagement with the iconic venue that had played a vitally important role in the creation of her public image. ‘Their Eyes Are On The Sparrow’ considers these final performances through duelling perspectives: the singer herself, recounting the major events of her life, and her doctor, whose cautionary gaze observes and documents her declining health from the side of the stage.
