A Laugh to Cry is a metaphysical theatre embodying eternal archetypes with music and multilingual libretto by Miguel Azguime.  Reflecting on the devastation of the Earth, on the barbarism of war, on the destruction of Nature, on the hegemonic power of the “market” and the consequent annihilation of cultures, on the loss of civilisational memory, he speculates and confronts us with the possible collapse of humanity but also with its eventual rebirth.

A Miso Ensemble /Miso Music Portugal project.

A Laugh to Cry” pursues Miguel Azguime’s goal, as a composer, poet and performer, to grasp an ideal balance between language and music, to merge the language’s semantic and metaphorical components with its sonic values, in order to achieve his concept of “speech as music and music as speech”. “A Laugh to Cry” extends Miguel Azguime’s research on voice analysis, re-synthesis and processing, aiming at creating a dynamic continuum between timbre, harmony, rhythm and voice spectra.
