Amazing how Melanie shows everyday routines in an exciting 30-minutes show on the rope. Putting on her shoes turns into a balancing act, applying mascara seems almost impossible… At the end oft he day she represents the typical ballerina on the rope – or maybe not?
With humorous ideas Melanie astounds her audience and balances through a virtual day, finds a new context in which normal things suddenly appear absurd. At the end we all have to ask ourselves: was it just a dream?
„Seiltanz“ is a 12-minutes-extract from Melanies show „hang loose – a day on the rope“ and shows the desperate preparations of a tightrope-dancer: getting dressed, putting on make up, warming up, – but what happens, if that takes place on a slack rope?
„Seiltanz“ charmingly turns show clichées to its opposite. Great acrobatics and a great show!
