Desire At The Melancholic String Concert

Desire at the Melancholic String Concert

Presented by Cake Theatrical Productions in collaboration with
Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay as part of The Studios

Desire works at the checkout counter of a supermarket. Day in and out she scans and beeps, trapped in total, utter dead-end boredom. In her imagination she is free, living many glorious lives as lover, heroine, rebel, rogue. In reality, she scans and beeps, scans and beeps in retail hell.

Desire at the Melancholic String Concert is an exploration of freedom beyond the unbending lines of power and oppression. Breaking free from tepid, gutless existence into wild unpredictability and heroic adventure. Pairing the dazzling duo Siti Khalijah and Rizman Putra and featuring the ultra-cool indie-rock band Tiramisu and the dynamic Philip Tan, this checkout girl is ready to meet the big bad crazy world!
