BIPF: Songs About Us


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

A new kind of musical show about children, violinists, soldiers, convicts, love and slapstick, you and me..

Devised, directed and presented by Dominic Harlan
With Rebecca Sharp and Matthew Sharp

Harlan’s high-octane homage to songs in ‘When Yesterday we Met’ is followed by his new show, ‘Songs About Us’. Three fearless musicians return to take you through eight gripping stories set to music by some of the world’s greatest songwriters. Choose to direct, sing and act with the performers, or simply watch the mayhem unfold from the safety of your seat. An unpredictable, irrepressible show in which only one thing is certain: you will leave with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.
‘An unmitigated triumph of the imagination’ – Ian Bostridge
‘One of the most extraordinary things I have ever witnessed.’
Meurig Bowen, artistic director, Cheltenham Music Festival

Following hit performances at Wigmore Hall, Cheltenham Festival, Oxford Lieder Festival and Bridgewater Hall, audiences said;

‘A mesmerisingly brilliant concept and very inspiring’.

‘I’ve seen many of your shows, but this was even more brilliant than all the others.’

‘Utterly magical.’

‘…made me smile and ache in equal amounts’.

‘So, so sick.’

Recommended for anyone aged 7+
