In the face of rejection, she never gives up her passion for performing the music of words and language. A cycle of songs recounting life in Marseille, Paris, New York and Florida, intertwined with sketches about the absurdity of modern existence.
A Scar Is Born won 2 Awards: San Diego Fringe festival 2022: Best World Premiere and San Francisco Fringe Festival 2022, Best of The Fringe. A Scar is Born will be fully produced in New York, Tucson and New Zealand in 2023.
