Northern Soul is a one-woman show about Victoria Melody’s attempts at joining in. Her eccentric ethnographic adventures have found her living with pigeon fanciers and learning to northern soul dance in strangers’ living rooms.
Victoria immerses herself into other people’s worlds, focusing on the extraordinary in the everyday. An idiosyncratic treasure trove of films, photos, and paraphernalia illuminate Victoria’s journey in this comedic, engaging, and hopeful performance. Commissioned by Farnham Maltings.
