March 12 – Funny in the Head and Fado

…the opening performance of the Kickstart Festival 2010!

She Laughed, She Cried
Friday, March 12  8pm

Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC
6265 Crescent Road
Vancouver

She Laughed, She Cried is an evening of fado and comedy that will move you
from tears to riotous laughter! The evening features two extraordinary and
very different artists who share a common ability to touch your heart.

Fado singer Sara Marreiros and her band open the evening. Dark and brooding or
gloriously ethereal, Sara’s sultry, sexy vocals are steeped in the passion of
saudade – the feeling of yearning that is part of the Portuguese soul.

Funny in the Head, a one-woman show by comedian, storyteller, writer and
mental health activist Jan Derbyshire. The show is the rollicking story of a
bipolar comedian’s fight to stay funny. She ultimately finds an answer to the
pressing question, “Is appearing normal a mental health act?”

Tickets: $22 ($16 students, seniors & fixed income) plus charges
