Pop songs often save us. Like a city street where something wonderful has unfolded in your life, a pop song can transport you to a memory, an emotion, a dream.
After resisting the charms of previous boy bands–New Kids on the Block, NSYNC, Backstreet Boys et al– for decades, Lanie fell hard for the massively popular British-Irish boy band One Direction (2010-2016). Their songs offered a sunny chance at happiness as she recovered from multiple brain injuries.
In this dizzyingly joyful performative lecture, Lanie will unpack the meaning of 1D songs and quite possibly the meaning of the liminal space we reside in.
Running time: 45 minutes
Love/appreciation of 1D and their oeuvre is not required.
