Monday 5 - Friday 9 February
Mele is working towards turning the art video, Wrapped Up In This, into a live performance.
The development will be ignited by revisiting the audio archive which consists of a series of facilitated conversations made in 2020 with black women from various experiences. This will support and inform the creative process when working with the collaborative team. The show is about growth and moving through resistance. Honoring who came before and collectively dreaming to manifest futures of love.
Work-In-Progress Sharing | Friday 9 February | 16:30 – 17:30 | BOOK HERE
We invite you to join the free public sharing of the work on Friday at 16:30. As this is an early stage development phase, Mele will be presenting a work-in-progress. Please come along as they will be grateful to hear your thoughts.
