Music meets storytelling at Esplanade Offstage. Esplanade is streaming the musical performance of singer-songwriter iNCH and poet Tan Lixin (the author of two poetry collections: Before We Are Ghosts and Keeping Skeletons). The two women join hands to tell the stories of the voiceless and to shine a light on social issues such as domestic abuse and marginalisation – which is ever important during this time, now that we're all staying at home. 

Performed and filmed live at Esplanade Concourse on March 24, the performance was part of the 2020 line-up for Foreword, the arts centre's free programme for March, where stories and literary texts take centre stage. 

Weaving original stories by Tan Lixin with songs and sound design by iNCH, this intimate and imaginative performance depicts familiar characters we may be familiar with. Bringing their narratives to life, the two artists seek to articulate unspoken thoughts and amplify the voices of those who often go unheard in our community.  

This live stream is part of Esplanade Offstage, an all-access backstage pass to the performing arts at Esplanade while we're all staying home. Watch performances of traditional Chinese music, ritualistic dances from India, and even karaoke sessions for the whole family.
