Does the music we love help define us, or does it instead help create us?
LET GLASGOW FLOURISH invites you to ‘In Loving Memory of Jane Doe’, a FREE public theatrical event exploring the links between music and identity.
‘In Loving Memory of Jane Doe’ will be presented as the humanist funeral of the fictional character Jane Doe. We are inviting you to a FAKE funeral.
Whilst this may sound morbid, this event will be a celebration of life. A celebration of an identity that manifests itself to those attending through each individual’s subjective interpretations of the music played and how it relates to Jane. We have actors and actresses involved to set the scene, giving context to Jane’s character by delivering eulogies as members of her family. Music will be played, you will listen, and the rest is up to you. Who is Jane Doe? Come along and help create her.
‘In Loving Memory of Jane Doe’ will be a filmed event, and some of those attending will be asked to offer their interpretations of Jane’s identity through what they’ve experienced. The event aims to highlight the impact that music has upon our lives – how we understand others through it, and how others use it to understand us.
Here are the details:
Event date: Saturday 2nd April
Event location: St Luke’s, Bain Street, Glasgow
Event start: 12pm

Whilst Jane Doe is fictional, everyone has a tangible identity. With this said, we will be raising money for the ‘Missing People’ charity at the event. Missing People “is the only charity in the UK which specialises in, and is dedicated to, bringing missing children and adults back together with their families.” With such a focus on identity, we hope to raise money for the chairty to help re-unite loved ones. Charity buckets will be placed at the venue to take donations. (https://www.missingpeople.org.uk/)
