This concert moves between two spaces at the Abbotsford Convent, from the Good Shepherd Chapel to the main performance auditorium.

"Before the modern Babel of the internet, lives outside the circles of wealth and power went undocumented and unnoticed beyond family and neighbourhood. When such an ordinary life did go wrong through crime or misfortune, an unnoticed existence became visible and, for a short time, took a clear and sharply defined shape...It could be a short ride from misdeed to myth..."(Martin Friedel)
