What is 'Shrine'?

'SHRINE' will be a dance performance installation that will be presented at the Theaterhalle in Dock 11, Berlin on June 27,28,29 and 30, 2013. 

It is a project from Melanie Lane, Berlin-based choreographer and performer who has been developing her body of work over the past 8 years. Her work pushes the physical relationship between body and architectural environment, often blurring the line between performance and installation.

'Shrine' is the next addition of a series or work that Melanie has been developing over the last 4 years. The project involves two dancers, sound designer, lighting designer and a bunch of carefully chosen materials and objects. It will be a full-length dance performance installation of approx 50-60 mins that will present the manifestation and construction of a re-invented place of worship. The premise of the work is to create a moving, choreographed sculptural entity using objects and materials found in our everyday environment that can be transformed into an urban/modern-day shrine. It will investigate the roots and action of ceremony and ritual while seeking to understand the power of sacred significance. The work comments on the symbolic figures of the ancestor, idol, hero, saint and daemon, drawing upon the human collective power/action of awe and respect for what we consider to be sacred.

Who will create the project? What is the budget we need - and how will we spend it?

The creative team for the project will be Melanie Lane as Director/performer, Roberto Morales as performer, Christopher Clark as Sound designer, Fabian Bleisch as technical director/lighting designer and Enthusiastic Encounters as PR/Marketing manager.

We are asking for the support of 2000 euros to cover the costs of materials, rehearsal studio hire, marketing and artistic/technical labour. Being fortunate enough to have an 'artist in residence' status at Dock 11 Studios, we have the generous in-kind support of theatre and technical rental/labour. The funds we hope to raise through Inkubato will help us bring the project into full realisation, allowing us the extra financial support to invest in the production elements (installation materials/transport/construction labour/marketing) needed to create and market a performance of the highest quality.


We are really excited to create this project, have a super talented artistic team which makes us confident that 'Shrine' will be a perfromance experience not to be missed! 

Any support from you whether it be small or BIG will be greatly appreciated and we will be forever grateful.

We have some little thankyou premiums to offer you too! Most importantly we hope that you have the opportunity to come and see it for yourselves, something new, unusual and exciting is brewing…
