La Captive

La Captive is the haunting portrait of a single immigrant mother who fights for a decent life for her and her child. Faced with the barriers of bureaucracy, prejudices, and inner despair she searches the depths of her soul for the strength to continue. As much a musical journey as an emotional one, this program draws from a wide range of musical sources – from Handel, Schubert, Chausson, Berlioz, Saint-Saëns, Ravel, to Piazzolla, as well as works by contemporary composers Zaid Jabri, Salim Dada and Nabil Benabdeljalil. In partnership with Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen, a number of refugees will also relate their personal experiences.
