Melt was part of Love Me, a program of three works—Reservoir of Giving I and II, On, and Melt—which explore relationships in projected environments. Melt describes a rise in temperature from freezing to boiling with each degree explored temperamentally and physically. It is a highly focused duet for two women whose detailed movements are intensified by the mercurial medium of motion graphics. [Text courtesy of Lucy Guerin Inc.]
