Melanie Forbes-Broomes: Buy This! and more

Fri 18 Jul 2014 | 8pm (45 mins) | FREE ENTRY

Melanie Forbes-Broomes is in residency at The Arches developing her practice in movement and theatre for her company Various Dance Artists (V/DA). By fusing her background in gymnastics, contemporary dance and theatre she aims to generate fresh performance material and the beginnings of a raw movement practice.

Melanie’s work is influenced and inspired by social politics and theatrical gestures executed by playing with personal limits/extremities of acrobatics, movement and voice.

Melanie will present highlights of her residency and Buy This! a work in progress performance exposing the absurdities of commodified products.

Buy This! will later be developed with Barcelona based dance artist Eva Yufra and Becky Anson (85A) through the Creative Futures Award (Creative Scotland) in association with Dancebase Edinburgh, The Work Room, Dance House Glasgow & CityMoves Aberdeen.
