Can art tell an old story in a new way? Does music have the power to transform narrative and heal wounds left wide open for centuries?
Daughters exposes a story often hidden behind closed doors and swept away from society’s day-to-day life. A story that ends in the death of one woman each week, yet is not considered a national emergency.
Through the expressive form of the Portuguese fado, guitar and song join together to tell the real-life stories of women and girls effected by gender violence. The soulful depth of soprano Aivale Cole’s voice will take you on a powerful journey following the survivors who can speak their truth and those who cannot.
Experience how music can deliver the strength of the women and girls who have been lost to domestic violence.
Libretto by Tammy Brennan and music by David Chisholm, with musicians Mauricio Carrasco, Leni Phillipe-Janon and Miranda Hill.
