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 the largest clubs in Melbourne. Mira wants to dance you through the myriad questions and contradictions of this work, that time & her world. Offering Melanie Jame’s own experience as a looking glass through which audiences are invited to critically reflect on their own position in relation to stripping, Mira Fuchs draws on the specific vocabularies of this extended 8 year bodily practice. This work seeks to explore ideas around gender, sexuality, pleasure, performative intimacy, the gaze, and dance as labour. Structured as an essay of fragments and made for an intimate audience seated in the round, Mira Fuchs proposes itself as an abstracted memoir of the body as a political riddle.
