Melanie Thompson M.A
I am a transdisciplinary artist, transdisciplinarity is concerned with what is between the disciplines, across the different disciplines, and beyond each individual discipline. Its goal is the understanding of the present world.
I have trained as a dancer, actor / performer and sites – specific artist and have self taught as a writer, public artist and now film maker. I have been making collaborative work professionally for over 30 years.
I am currently curious and passionate about tree’s / the act of love / reading strangers and the future of our planet.
I have been lucky enough to have been making and teaching experimental performance work for all of my life. It is not a job it is essential to my being.
I have had no career path as I have always followed my nose and the people I have found interesting and stimulating to work with, which has taken me all over the world. Many of the projects I have been involved in are initiated by myself.

This autumn /winter I would like to teach / share a series of workshops exploring the process of making transdisciplinary art work, starting with taster evenings and then developing into a committed training, building into a series of interventions responding to the places and situations we find ourselves in.
I am looking for institutions or organisations or individuals who would like to support this work. If you are curious, please contact me for more information.
