Chicago Cabaret Week: Pieces of a Song – Chris McCarthy & Clotilde

Chicago Cabaret Week 2022

Pieces of a Song – Chris McCarthy & Clotilde

LIVESTREAM. Audience by invitation only. Please contact Fulton Street Collective for your invitation at 773-852-2481 or

With this duo, the interdisciplinary French artist Clotilde and the acclaimed American pianist and keyboardist Chris McCarthy deepen their collaboration. Opening by Christy Bennett’s Fumée Duo of manouche-gypsy jazz.

Inspired by the Beat Generation poets Chris and Clotilde create a repertoire of rageous yet ecstatic original pieces in French and English, infused with the writings of idiosyncratic Beat Generation poet Diane di Prima. With this repertoire, they explore her identity crisis born out of poverty, of rebellion, of being a woman, of standing on the outside of the culture, of making bold choices in a more constraining world. “ FREE them / FREE yourself / Help to FREE me / FREE us / DANCE ” – Diane di Prima – Revolutionary Letter 49.

Pieces of a Song has been made possible through the Jazz & New Music, a program of FACE Foundation, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States. Line up : Clotilde (vocal, flute) // Chris McCarthy (piano, prophet).

Clotilde offers a master class on Vocal Resonance as part of the Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion international conference. Visit for May 9-13 daytime workshops.

Tuesday, May 10, 2022, 8:00 PM until 10:00 PM
