She Melts 

physical theatre, one performer & one musician

7pm Sat Sept 10&  7pm Sun Sept 11 2016 at Maleny Indoor Activity Centre

“Where is my heart?” she asks, released at last from her frozen slumber.  She melts through memories in search of that vital missing part… but will she be tempted to remain fragmented? or has she the courage to make herself whole?

Performer Cindy Schwenn presents a darkish fairytale based upon her personal story told through physical theatre, circus aerials, dance and spoken word with original live music by Sue Moxon.

“She Melts” is created by Cindy Schwenn with Sue Moxon and Celia White.  All music is composed by Sue Moxon.  Creative support was received from Anna Yen and other talented women within the Brisbane circus community.

You can follow the creative development of ‘She Melts’ on Cindy’s blog page.

Artist Bio’s
Cindy Schwenn is an artist of many creative disciplines including circus, dance, physical theatre, storytelling and visual art. Essentially a storyteller at heart, Cindy’s work is inspired by the fierce and wise old versions of fairytales found in books such as “Women Who Run with the Wolvcs” by Clarisa Pinkola Estes.  Cindy also runs Sylph Circus, a youth circus performance group and training centre for young people in Maleny, Queensland Australia. 
Sue Moxon is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and teacher who has been inspired and influenced by a rich variety of experiences that have collectively shaped her style giving it depth, energy and diversity. Common themes often found in her work are of regeneration, renewal and growth through transformation. Sue performs on a wide variety of instruments, many of them unique such as Hang, Handpan, Khean, Kalimba, Native American Flute, Piano, Cello and Guitar allowing her to create unique and atmospheric soundscape experiences that resonate deeply with audiences and provide depth and inspiration to visual and artistic projects. 

This year I am accompanying the wonderfully talented JJ on the  keyboard as she sings a variety of songs at the Mitchell Creek Rock n Blues Festival. JJ has a beautiful voice and  brings great maturity and feeling into her music. Come along on Sunday September 18th and discover her wonderful covers and free improvisations.
