Northern Soul is a one-woman show about Victoria Melody’s attempts at joining in. Her unusual ethnographic approach to art practice has found her living with pigeon fanciers for a year and more recently learning to northern soul dance in stranger’s living rooms.
Victoria immerses herself into other peoples Worlds and examines national characteristics and regional phenomena, focusing on the extraordinary in the everyday. A treasure trove of films, photos and paraphernalia accompany Victoria’s journey in this comedic, engaging and hopeful performance.
“She’s an actress, she’s a performance poet she is a comedian….Northern Soul is brilliant!”
