Alison Mackay’s superb multimedia creations, blending music, visuals, narration, dance, and social commentary, are now famous the world over. In this latest offering, she traces the significance of the introduction into 17th-century Europe of indigofera tinctoria, the indigo dye that provided both the royal blue of the Bourbon courts and the colour of the cotton fabric worn by the common folk, known as denim.
This fascinating social and musical journey travels from the courts of Europe to the lowest classes of European life, and extends into the exploitation of garment workers in the present day. Blending music both classical and popular, the program includes representations of the India where indigofera tinctoria was grown and the North American slave plantations where it was cultivated.
