Jacqui Dark is Alive and Well and Living In Newtown: The Songs of Jacques Brel

6:00pm, Thu 22 April, 2021

Event Details

From the earthy grime of the ports of Amsterdam through the devastation of If You Go Away, Brel’s songs brilliantly capture the breadth of what it is to be human, and no soul is left untouched.

After sold out seasons of her cabaretTake This Longingat Claire’s Kitchen and Darlinghurst Theatre, one of Australia’s finest interpreters of song returns, accompanied by award-winning musical director Daryl Wallis on piano and with direction by Sam Russell, to ride the carousel of emotions from the master of chanson, Jacques Brel.

Brel’s intelligent songs of heartbreak, passion, desperation and amour speak fearlessly, with uncompromising and often sardonic observations of the human spirit.

From the earthy grime of the ports of Amsterdam  through the devastation of If You Go Away, Brel’s songs brilliantly capture the breadth of what it is to be human, and no soul is left untouched.
