City Recital Hall & The Big Anxiety present: Daughters
17 October 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT$40
Daughters is a world premiere song-cycle that uses the haunting form of Portuguese fado, female voice and intimate musical accompaniment to evoke the strength and tragedy of women and girls, lost to violence.
Drawing on real-life stories, the 12 songs are emblematic of a global crisis that affects one in three women in their lifetime. Librettist Tammy Brennan and composer David Chisholm through soprano Aivale Cole and musicians Mauricio Carrasco, Leni Phillipe-Janon and Miranda Hill, take the audience on a powerful journey tracing the effects of gender violence.
There will be a panel discussion before the performance.
