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 affected 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.

Join us for an In Conversation before the performance with Tammy Brennan (Librettist) and Moo Baulch (former CEO Domestic Violence NSW) moderated by Andrea Durbach (Professor of Law UNSW). The pre-show conversation will look at the role of art and artistic processes as mechanisms for transforming community attitudes to gender inequality and resulting harm.

Event Timings:
In Conversation 6:30pm–7:15pm
Interval 7:15pm–8pm
Performance 8pm–9pm

The song-cycle is part of a world first intercultural Australian and Indian opera project, The Daughters Opera Project. The full international opera work premieres in New Delhi, India in January 2020. The opera is supported by Australia Council for the Arts, Create NSW, Creative Victoria, The Australian High Commission, and Teamwork Arts.
