From March 13 to 17, Boca del Lupo presents Nightswimming Theatre's These Are the Songs That I Sing When I’m Sad at the Fishbowl on Granville Island (100–1398 Cartwright Street).
As part of its Micro Performance Series, Boca del Lupo presents Jane Miller and Brian Quirt's exploration of the way music orchestrates our emotions and taps into our deepest longings. Through storytelling and songs, singer and pianist Miller probes the sad songs that have played a role in her own life and delves into the link between deep emotions and the musical elements that make these songs so addictive.
Reviewing a past performance of These Are the Songs That I Sing When I’m Sad for the Georgia Straight, Kathleen Oliver wrote:
Miller’s presentation of this information is so casual that it never feels like a lecture; it’s more like good dinner-party conversation. She encourages the audience to share their favourite sad songs, and there’s an uncensored quality to the group’s reactions—which include a good deal of laughter—to her stories.
Tickets for These Are the Songs That I Sing When I’m Sad are available now on the Boca del Lupo website.
