Exotic dance meets techno meets burlesque meets pop in a brand new dance work from Melanie Lane. An in-demand choreographer and performer who divides her time between Melbourne and Berlin, Lane's latest piece is billed as a sultry and transgressive effort, and is set to make its world premiere at Arts House in North Melbourne on Thursday, August 24.
Lane will be joined on stage by dancers Lilian Steiner and Gregory Lorenzutti, in an hour-long show that examines "the physical experience of the nightclub". "As performers oscillate between entertainer and punter, lap dance and lip-sync, Lane shines a spotlight on the economy of entertainment," reads the event description. Nightdance will dim the lights and ask you to question how you dance the night away.
