A quirky comedy on the nature of longing and lack.
A monkey looks for a Messiah, a mother tries to keep pace with her voracious child, a flute-player has the wind taken out of him by today’s headlines. At times hilarious, at times heart-breaking but always strangely entertaining, WANT explores the distance between what we want and what we get. Inspired by Topeng Pajegon, a Balinese tradition of solo mask performance, WANT is told through masks, puppets, clowning, live music, and a highly emotive sock monkey.
