Maddie Mellon is a London-based queer multidisciplinary artist. She graduated with a BA Honours Theatre Practice Design for Stage in 2018 from RCSSD. In this field her experience includes circus, festivals and fringe venues. She has since shifted more into the world of movement and visual art. Initially classically trained in Ballet, she has trained with a broad spectrum of industry professionals, including Emma Rice, Mademoiselle Ginger and Vicki Igbokwe, to nurture a practice stretching from physical theatre to waacking to contemporary dance. As a dancer and gymnast she has performed at Wembley Arena and Big Dance festival on South Bank. A qualified Sports Therapist, she is constantly intrigued and amazed by the human body, using her unique experience of art, dance and holistic therapies to explore the relationship between the body and identity. Most recently, this has been through Bold Mellon, a collective of queer, multidisciplinary artists she founded alongside Amy Mitchell and Emilia Nurmukhametova. Maddie‘s art and choreography interrogate the relationship between mind, body and soul. As an extremely physical person with a tic disorder, this relationship can become an interesting paradox. A painter, dancer, sports massage therapist, and amateur musician, her work is inherently multidisciplinary and multifocal. She has now shifted focus, and hopes to study anatomy and neuroscience at a higher level. She hopes she will grow up to be a global sensation, a phenomenologist, a quantum physicist, a diplomat and Dr. Mellon. Mostly she just wants to read.
Maddie: Against an aged, beige brick background, a pale freckled woman in their twenties with blue eyes and strawberry blond hair looks straight at the camera. The left eyebrow is slightly elevated, blue eyes are slightly squinted, and the corner of her lips is upturned. She is wearing a fitted black waistcoat.
