Three female singers tackle the music of Frederik Croene from their individual backgrounds: soprano Lore Binon, singer-songwriter IKRAAN and performer Amina Osmanu. The texts come from Dominique De Groen’s immense novel-in-progress, in which three young women forge a magical connection. Together they decide to combat the irredeemable, patriarchal world with radical sorcery. A playful but powerful defiance of female clichés and a worrying future. 

This production was realized with the support of the Tax Shelter measure of the Belgian federal government, Gallop Tax shelter and Het Nieuwstedelijk.
