Mira Fuchs | Australia

Mira Fuchs is an expert. An expert private dancer. She is the public face of Savage Amusement artist Melanie Jame Wolf's 8 year private life working as a stripper in one of Melbourne's largest Gentleman's Clubs. Mira wants to dance you through the myriad questions and contradictions of this work, that time & her world. Offering Melanie Jame's own story as a looking glass through which audiences are invited to critically reflect on their position, Mira Fuchs draws on the specific vocabularies of this extended  8 year bodily practice. Mira Fuchs seeks to question ideas around gender, sexuality, pleasure, performative intimacy, and dance & performance as labour. Made for an audience of 35 in the round, the work proposes itself as an abstracted memoir of the body as a political riddle.
