Jacques Brel Cabaret
presented by Bodhi Tree Concerts
Jacques Brel blended words with music in a daring way. He invented words, exaggerated meanings and ideas and created characters which he played with unequaled passion – although we are going to give it a try. Jacques went through life, pen in hand, in search of other people’s dreams – love, hopefulness, peace, non-violence and understanding. Four outstanding, completely unique local artists will bring his amazing words and stories alive, retelling messages that have just as much power & meaning as when he first wrote them.
