Nachtschade: Aubergine with Claron McFadden (voice)

world music / flamenco / fado, jazz

Nachtschade: Aubergine met o.a. Claron McFadden (voice)

Claron McFadden has travelled in pursuit of the aubergine: from the Far East through the Mediterranean world to the West. The age-old migration of this vegetable reminds us of present migrations.

On her journey, this singer picked up stories and songs which she now wants to share. In her wake, the film-maker Lisa Tahon tells the story of her journey on the silver screen.

A production of Muziektheater Transparant in coproduction with Concertgebouw Brugge and Operadagen Rotterdam. In association with Studio Minailo.
