In his new performance ‘Donald Urquhart’s Palace of Tears,’ Urquhart analyzes the possibilities of manipulating the audience, in his characteristically melancholy way.  Urquhart will present a performance about sadness, singing six songs full of amusing anecdotes and troubling reflections, trapping the audience members’ feelings uncomfortably between laughter and sadness.  The work addresses the phenomenon of sad songs and dramatic actors, and deals with the question of what really attracts us to certain types of performance (cinema, concerts, theater, religious celebrations) that we hope will make us cry.  Before the performance, the audience will receive tissues.
