Bold Mellon is an award-nominated arts collective dedicated to amplifying intersectional queer stories, founded by Amy-Rose Edlyn and Emilia Nurmukhamet.

Our work focuses on an interdisciplinary approach to performance: combining live sound, digital media and performance art alongside focusing on autobiographical and documentary style writing. We also produce cabaret, scratch performances, live music, club nights and curate visual art events – providing a platform for emerging and early career queer artists to experiment, collaborate and express themselves! 

Our debut show BELINDA (**** Everything Theatre) has been nominated for an Offies Award In IDEA Production for its run at the Vaults Festival 2023, then transferring to Kings Head Theatre as a part of the Queer Interrogation Season and Camden People’s Theatre as a part of the New Adventures Festival. Our most recent production of KLAZO performed as a part of Social Model & More Festival at Theatre Deli has been described as ‘an outstanding’ , ‘mesmerizing’ , ‘impressive’, ‘visceral’ and ‘compelling’ performance (Fringebiscuit Magazine & The Reviews Hub). Our public exhibition QUEER JOY commissioned by This is Croydon Mayor’s Borough of London has been described as ‘affirming’, ‘encouraging’ and ‘nourishing’ by our audiences and community members.

Artists in residence at Lyric Hammersmith Theatre (2021) , Above the Stag Theatre (2021-2022), Stanley Arts (2022-2023), Kings Head Theatre (2024) and Ugly Duck (2024) . We’ve also worked with The Place, Contact Manchester, Royal Docks, The Social, VFDalston, Hen and Chickens Theatre and Rich Mix, Battersea Arts Centre and Bush Theatre.

Image Descriptions


Against a pale grey background, a non-binary person in their twenties with ombréd brown to red gold shoulder length hair are stood slightly at an angle, looking up at the camera with bright blue eyes. Their skin is pale, eyelashes and eyebrows are dark and lips are full. They are wearing a horizontally striped black and white top.


Against an aged, beige brick background, a Tatar woman in her twenties with hazel eyes and long, black hair, parted down the centre, stares straight at the camera. Her chin is tilted slightly up, and her right hand is on her hip, and she wears a cropped white and pastel pink and blue blazer.
