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

Following a successful run last year, Boca del Lupo brings back its Micro Performance piece, These Are The Songs That I Sing When I’m Sad (Mar 13-17). Integrating live piano with the scientific exploration of sad songs, Jane Miller delves into the link between deep emotions and the musical elements that can make songs so addictive.

Tomorrow’s Child

Calgary’s Ghost River Theatre arrives at the Shadbolt in Burnaby with Tomorrow’s Child (Mar 14-17), an audio-only adaptation of Bradbury’s classic sci-fi short story. Audiences will be blindfolded as they enter the theatre and, with the help of latest in sound technology, will listen to Bradbury’s tale of a couple facing the realities of their newborn baby, who has been born into another dimension.

The After After Party

Fiona and Jules go on a most excellent adventure in The After After Party (until Mar 17). In what our reviewer called comedy gold, the alter-egos of Katey Hoffman and Cheyenne Mabberley are teenage misfits who are just looking to fit in. With the help of some Ritalin, the two piece together their wild night out.
