The Boxties: City of Strangers
catches the heart off guard, and blows it open
2 performances only
7.30pm 14 and 15 December 2018
Cremorne Theatre QPAC
Powerful and subtle, the Boxties follow up their 2016-17 QPAC show Bound Away to Leave You with an atmospheric selection of songs. They draw on the traditional musical lore of Britain and Ireland, and the works of Sondheim and Sting. The songs take us here and there, touching on ideas of home, longing and exile (with the odd digression).
In City of Strangers, they are joined by guest performers from the Boxties Mentorship Program and the FHEAL Choir.
Also on board are regular Boxties collaborators David Walters (lighting design), Bill Haycock (design) and James Harper (words).
