Melody is an emerging performance artist based in Auckland. She creates autobiographical and movement-based solo performance works exploring human nature, identity and irrational, anxious thought patterns that spin her out of control. She incorporates audio-visual design and projection into her theatre works and often focuses on audience participation, as she believes theatre is a conversation starter and a platform to build relationships within new communities.
Melody curates and hosts a monthly ‘Scratch Night’ event – a platform for performance makers to trial material in front of a live audience. She believes in supporting her peers to develop their ideas and wants to create spaces for audience participation where a sense of engagement and welcome is paramount.
