The iconoclastic star of the show is the aubergine: on the night of the main event, this project lets the audience experience rich aubergine-centred cuisine while enjoying travel stories, a documentary film and live music with influences from many cultures.

Along with filmmaker Lisa Tahon, McFadden traces the migration route of the aubergine in reverse, back to its roots in the Far East, where she learns local aubergine recipes and practices traditional songs in multiple households.
