Victoria Melody – Major Tom Workshop
February 28, 2014
12pm – 3pm (with an artist talk to follow)
To accompany the touring of her new show Major Tom, Victoria has created a workshop that offers an insight into the strategies and methodologies that she uses when creating new work. The workshop will look at her creative triggers and her approach to creating research based work.
Participants will experiment with creating solo performances, confessional performances, humorous performances, performances from observed behaviour and performances using video and collected paraphernalia.
Victoria Melody is a British artist with a background in fine art. She makes one-woman theatrical shows, performance interventions and films mainly about England’s pastimes, passions and tribes. Fascinated by anthropology, she immerses herself into communities and becomes an active participant in their rituals as research for her work.
In the past she has become a pigeon racer, a northern soul dancer, a championship dog handler and a beauty queen. Victoria has presented her work nationally and internationally at venues including Soho Theatre, Oxford Playhouse, The Lowry, Bristol Old Vic, Battersea Arts Centre, Summerhall (Edinburgh Festival Fringe), PuSh Festival (Canada), Aarhus Festival (Denmark) and Brisbane Festival (Australia). www.victoriamelody.co.uk
