Archant

DIRECTED by international phenomenon and star of La Clique Ursula Martinez, Northern Soul is a hilarious one-woman show about Victoria’s attempts at joining in.

Her eccentric ethnographic approach to making performances has found her living with pigeon fanciers and learning to northern soul dance in strangers’ living rooms. Immersing herself in other people’s worlds,

Victoria examines national characteristics, focusing on the extraordinary in the everyday. She explores Britain’s pastimes, passions and tribes. A treasure trove of films, photos and paraphernalia accompany her journey in this comedic, engaging and hopeful performance.

Following a successful Autumn 2011 tour Victoria Melody is delighted to be taking Northern Soul on the road again on a UK wide tour to venues up and down the country.

Victoria is based in Brighton and has presented her work nationally and internationally. She premiered Northern Soul to sell out audiences at the Brighton Festival 2011.

The show is on Thursday November 15 at the junction in Cambridge. Tickets, £12 or £8 concessions, are available from 01223 511511 or junction.co.uk. Doors open at 7pm.
