Nightshade: Aubergine was originally conceived as a ‘music theatre road movie’. Together with documentary maker Lisa Tahon, soprano Claron McFadden went in search of our common roots along different cultures, based on the spectacular migration history of an age-old nightshade plant: the aubergine. Together they travelled to countries around the Mediterranean sea: Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain and Morocco. They stayed with a host family, cooked a local aubergine dish and learned a traditional song. This concert is the reflection of this special series of culinary-musical encounters.

 

Free event, no booking, just turn up and enjoy!
