Joni Mitchell wrote songs that defined an era and a generation.
Ripe with honest reflections on the human experience, her songs traverse infatuation, the confusing nature of courtship, failure, freedom, travel, optimism and the cost of being a woman. She is an artist of both heart and mind.
From honey-sweet falsetto to menacing growl, the voice of iconic NZ talent Julia Deans has offered light and shade to a variety of musical endeavours. From fronting Fur Patrol to co-conspirator with renowned supergroup The Adults to sultry chanteuse in Silo Theatre’s Brel, Deans has talent which soars.
This is no mere tribute show. In the hands of Deans, and under the direction of Shane Bosher, this take on Joni Mitchell’s lyrical imagery promises to be profoundly personal and intimate.
