THE PAIN OF DESIRE
Standing in a cold spotlight is Wendy Bevan. A femme fatale buckled in sparkling armour, daubed in warpaint,
her stare fixed on a distant spot. Around her faces gaze as her introduction swells, breaks and there is silence. Then, she sings.
With a presence that is equal parts Dietrich and Medusa, Bevan's songs break her heart open and take the audience on a journey through loss and ecstasy, from the gates of Hell to a ditch full of discarded cider cans at the bottom of a field.
Crunching drum beats that shake the walls and a thick bass line that echoes in the chest, The Pain of Desire is a divine, temptuous musical and visual odyssey with original songs from Bevan and Seiriol Davies, performed by the sensational Temper Temper.
