Melanie Lane (D)

Tilted Fawn

A solo performance from Melanie Lane
with sound installation from CLARK

Concept/Choreography/Dance...Melanie Lane
Sound Composition and Installation...Chris Clark
Artistic Collaboration...Morgan Belenguer
Dramaturgy...Bart Van de Eynde
Duration...25 mins

The history of a person is documented in endless forms. Through sound, words and images, we can glimpse an imagined narrative of our past. Yet the past is immoveable, unknowable, ever elusive and often challenging to confront. Imagine if the power to change or manipulate our personal histories existed.

Through the performers dialogue with documented sound history and anonymous objects, an environment is constructed in which one is confronted with the merging of two worlds; past and present. Here the environment takes on a role of power. It gives the opportunity to consider one's history and reflect on the possibilties of how our imagination can twist the reality of our past. From this experience there is a window of opportunity opened up to another dimension...a world of illusion and fantasy.

In collaboration with reknowned electronic music artist CLARK (Warp records UK), Melanie and CLARK continue their working partnership for the second time after the successful production 'HELD' in collaboration with Morgan Belenguer (2008), this time developing a sound installation that is composed in co-ordination with objects and choreography in space. The sound is comprised of audio documentations, an ecclectic range of events that transform and influence the environment.

In the intimacy of a solo performance, 'Tilted Fawn' builds a universe that offers a dialogue between fantasy and reality through sound and movement. It brings to the surface images that are absurd, dark, light and other-worldly.
