What is it?
International performance artist Victoria Melody brings her humorous and thought-provoking one woman show to Jacksons Lane.
Directed by international phenomenon and star of La Clique, Ursula Martinez, Northern Soul is a show about Victoria’s attempts at joining in. Her eccentric ethnographic approach to art practice has found her living with pigeon fanciers and learning to Northern Soul dance in strangers’ living rooms.
Victoria Melody’s work deals with everyday life and her fascination with that which remains unsaid, unheard, unseen and unfelt – making visible the invisible. These often humorous video and performance works examine national characteristics and international phenomena where what appears to be suburban or domestic can turn into something political or steeped in ritual.
