Be prepared to forget everything you know about Marlene Dietrich through two special events in Miami Beach Art Deco District, on August 28th and 29th, 2017.

Starring Cyrielle Clair and Gérard Chambre, MARLENE IS BACK is a theatre play produced by French fashion designer Pierre Cardin who also conceived the costumes of the show.

In this portrait, Marlene Dietrich, one of the most fascinating actresses and singers of the 20th century, is revealed to the public. Behind the mask was hiding an inventive soul, a sensitive heart, a creative mind, dominated by a strong sense of rigor and discipline. This fragile and radiant beauty lived as a free woman, tasting the savors of love but always mastering her desires. She shined like a dazzling star across victories and defeats, aspirations and illusions. A woman of courage, she renounced her German nationality in protest against the Nazi regime.

Text Cyrielle Clair & Gérard Chambre
Adaptation Cyrielle Clair
Scenography Rodrigo Basilicati
Video Stanislas Graziani
Costumes Pierre Cardin

The play will be performed in French, subtitled in English.
