Victoria Melody heads to Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts

Acclaimed performance artist and theatre-maker Victoria Melody brings her current tour to Brighton’s Attenborough for the Creative Arts. She will perform on Tues 24 – Weds 25 Oct for a hometown show.

Fresh from a celebrated run at Edinburgh Fringe quirky and funny exploration of what success really means. Perhaps it’s not about winning a Nobel Prize or successfully applying for a mortgage. Perhaps it’s more about being your true self. 

Sufficiently disillusioned with her theatre career that she shoved cake into a woman’s face, Victoria Melody turned to stand-up comedy.

But in her search for creative freedom, she finds constraints and rules that she struggles to fit herself to.

Melody has previously been a pigeon fancier, northern soul dancer, beauty queen, championship dog show handler and funeral director. All in the name of art. But when she realises she’s hiding behind her headset on the comedy circuit, she starts to question. What it would feel like to really share herself, divergent and messy brain included?

We find her after a hyper-focused dive into dopamine mining, teaming up with a neuroscientist and performing with a Faraday cage on her head to explore the potential of stand-up as self-medication for ADHD. Now, Head Set is the chronicle of Victoria’s journey; a bonkers, hilarious and galvanising celebration of becoming your authenticity.
