The Colour of Desire, presented by contemporary Indian classical group, Urban Layas, is a two-hour exploration of female desire in South Asian music and poetry, through a unique combination of vocal, instrumental and dance performances by some of Melbourne's emerging artists. From fun and frivolous to deeply romantic and even tortured, The Colour of Desire reclaims female sexuality in all its hues, puts it back in the bodies and voices of real women, and engages with the question of the gap between the sexually liberated female voice in music and contemporary representations in everyday life.

Playing with both Western and South Asian music traditions, and also featuring guest performances by spoken word artist Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa, Kuchipudi dancer Shyama Sasidharan, visual artist Anindita Banerjee, and dancer and academic Dr Priya Srinivasan, ‘The Colour of Desire’ defies conventional categories, and makes the classical contemporary in ways you’ve never seen before. All proceeds from the night will be donated to feature documentary Geeta to help with post production.
