Wrapped Up In This – Mele Broomes
Commissioned by Contact, Live Art UK Diverse Actions and Black Gold Arts. Presenting in Manchester, June 2020
A new solo work that combines, dance, experiential vocals and lyrical poetry. Mele aims to create a live performative like gig accompanied by a bespoke sound track whilst embodying a technological polymorphous costume. A sometimes identifiable and seemingly extraneous character who has worked for nearly a century supporting the daily activities of the human species. Now they speak through a laborious and beautiful journey of malfunctioning as their form begin to dematerialise.
Mele Broomes is an award-winning choreographer and performer (Total Theatre Awards, Best Dance at Edinburgh Fringe 2018 for work VOID).
