These Are The Songs That I Sing When I Am Sad
by Jane Miller and Brian Quirt
Produced by Nightswimming Theatre
Presented as part of the Micro Performance Series
Coming June 2017 to 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.
