Description

These Are The Songs That I Sing When I'm Sad

Created by Jane Miller and Brian Quirt

Presented by Boca del Lupo's Micro Performance Series, produced by Nightswimming

This show investigates the tunes that people turn to when they’re sad, the songs that they play to soothe their blues or lift them up out of the depths of sadness. The show examines why we identify certain songs as sad or melancholy, and others as joyful, beautiful or triumphant.

These Are The Songs That I Sing When I’m Sad is an intimate, interactive performance by the remarkable singer Jane Miller. Through storytelling and songs, Jane explores the sad songs that have played a role in her life and delves into the link between deep emotions and the musical elements that make these songs so addictive. Audience members are drawn into the action when their favourite sad songs are requested and, in some cases, played by Jane in real-time. Sad Songs examines why we identify certain songs as sad or melancholy, and others as joyful, beautiful or triumphant, and how they weave themselves into our lives.

The performance is 80 minutes long with no intermission.
