Crazy About You: Sifting for Sanity in the History of the Insane

June 18, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

After the success of her crowd-pleasing concerts “Madams, Matrons, and Madwomen” and “‘Oy Vey’ is Jewish for ‘Uff-da,’” award-winning songwriter Elisa Korenne shifts her attention to mental health. Her newest song-and-story concert “Crazy About You” combines original songs, stories, anecdotes, and music to examine the fine line between sanity and insanity and how it has shifted over time. The show covers the history of mental health from ancient times to the present, and shows how “crazy” can be a state of mind. New original songs include “Welcome to Geel” about the unusual and immensely successful treatment program developed in 14th-century Belgium and “Audrey Munson” about America’s first supermodel forgotten in a New York State asylum. If you enjoyed her mini-music-documentary videos on Prairie Public Television, you will love seeing Elisa Korenne live, performing her unique portraits of extraordinary people in history. Elisa will be accompanied by the national Fergus Falls-based musician David Stoddard.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.
