Julia Deans' voice ranges from honey-sweet falsetto to menacing growl and has offered light and shade to a variety of musical endeavours; from frontperson of Fur patrol to co-conspirator with renowned supergroup The Adults, via sultry chanteuse in silo theatre's Brel. Now Deans' soaring talent is let loose on Joni Mitchell's legendary songbook.
This is no mere tribute show. In the hands of an interpretive artist like Deans, this take on Mitchell's lyrical imagery is profoundly personal, intimate and true.
Both Sides Now was originally commissioned by Auckland Live and premiered at the Auckland International Cabaret Season in 2014.
90 minute show with no interval.
