Mira Fuchs is an expert. An expert private dancer.
She’s also the public face of artist Melanie Jame Wolf’s eight-year private life as a stripper in a gentleman’s club. Mira wants to dance you through the myriad questions and contradictions of her work, that time and her world.
In an intimate, in-the-round work, Wolf speaks, prances and twists her way through an abstracted memoir that trips between lap-dance and body politics. With humour, high heels and deep insight, she fashions a looking glass for our own reflections on the work of stripping.
Leave your preconceptions with the coat-check and step into an oft-hidden economy of desire and exchange. Both entertaining and unflinchingly personal, Mira Fuchs explores sexuality, gender, performance, intimacy, dance-as-labour, looking and being looked at, and pleasure, in a world where money is time and timing is everything.
