Melt

Essential Dance Film - MELT

 

MELT is a cinematic reimagining of a full-length multimedia dance performance featured on TenduTV’s Essential Dance Film site. Melt, seen below, is also the name of the short dance film by Canadian Noémie Lafrance, which premiered in 2010. Lafrance’s Melt depicts a delicate, sensual and dramatic experience of the physical body in exile and surrender. Perched on a wall and wrapped in sculptural beeswax and lanolin costumes that are slowly melting away, dancers progress in euphoria and exhaustion as if approaching the sun, melting until their souls escape their ephemeral bodies and disintegrate into light.
