Melanie Lomoff Free to Fall Developed Artist 2014

Three Studies in Flesh
A work in progress choreographed by Melanie Lomoff in collaboration with sound artist Josh Anio Grigg.
Three Studies in Flesh is a study, an exchange of movement back and forth between a written choreography and interactive research with a live sound artist. The starting point, the shapes inherent in Francis Bacon’s triptych paintings and interpretation of human figures within his work which evoke distortion of the envelope of the flesh and create hybrid creatures. Melanie performs in pointe shoes, creating a tension between form, exploring distortion and imbalance. This year Melanie is being supported by Free to Fall (Artists Development Programme) offering a bespoke ladder of development on her current choreographic work.

Melanie studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieure de danse de Paris. She danced for 10 years with the Montalvo/Hervieu company performing all over the world and was their assistant at the Paris Opera. Whilst in the Company, in November 2000, she won the "Grand Prix" at the Paris International Dance Competition. Since 2006 she has been working regularly with the Ballets C de la B first of all for VSPRS (Alain Platel) and Patchagonia (Lisi Estaras).
In the last year she has created a company in Caen "Collectif T" whose first piece "Fugue Blanche" has been developed in Deauville and Bayeux.
In 2013, she created CODE UNKNOWN a solo dance choreography, with residencies at Mousonturm Frankfurt and CSC Bassano, performing it in London, at the London Contemporary Music Festival and in South Korea at the Miryang Performing Arts Festival. For London Contemporary Music Festival she created TO DREAM NOT TO SLEEP a dance theatre piece for young people.

Melanie recently scartched THREE STUDIES OF FLESH at Free to Fall (Greenwich Dance) and will show a further developed version at FEST LIVE (Liverpool) 23rd May followed by Free to Fall (Rich Mix) 4th July before it premieres at the BRAVE FESTIVAL in Poland (12th July) and London Premiere at the FREE TO FALL FESTIVAL (6th & 7th September)
