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

by Jane Miller and Brian Quirt
Performed by Jane Miller
Produced by Nightswimming Theatre
Presented as part of the Micro Performance Series
June 7 – 10, 2017 at The Fishbowl on Granville Island


This show investigates a cappella song and singing and the emotions that surround both the form and the action, exploring 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.

In an intimate performance, remarkable singer Jane Miller tells about the songs that play this role in her life and delves into the link between deep emotions and the musical elements that make sad songs so addictive. These Are The Songs That I Sing When I’m Sad was created by Jane Miller and Brian Quirt from Nightswimming.

The performance is 80 minutes long with no intermission.
