MELT; a prefix for a prayer is a 30 minute solo inspired by the idea of melting the boundaries that divide us. It is a dancing ritual and an exercise on freedom. The piece engages the audience in surprising ways, giving each individual an opportunity to experience this openness from new perspectives. The word ‘MELT’ refers to a softening of the heart and our behaviour; melting away the physical barrier which causes fear or the inhibition to connect.
