CultureLAB residency Arts House

Melanie is currently developing a new dance work that investigates night life and its effect on the body. She invites performers Lilian Steiner and Gregory Lorenzutti as well as local night entertainment artists from exotic, burlesque and club backgrounds to join her. The research engages light artist Ben ‘Bosco’ Shaw and electronic music producer Clark as collaborators, seeking a language that amplifies the artificiality and influence of light and sound that is inherent to reclaiming urban night life.

Together they attempt to develop a dance that encompasses the experiential effect on the body based on the social, animal and physical behaviour that exists in nocturnal environments.
