»Ballads of Outlaw Feelings« is an ongoing series of musical performances by Berlin based visual artist and choreographer, Melanie Jame Wolf. In this series of solo concerts, Wolf explores the repetitive hooks of pop, the immediacy of folk music, and the expressionist tradition of Sprechgesang to produce a darkly humorous emotional landscape. In this edition of our Sunday concert series »Krach mit Sahne«, Wolf will work with her voice including looped vocal effects, and simple piano and guitar accompaniment to produce an intimate live musical experience about heartbreak. As always, there‘s coffee, cake and loads of (vegan) cream too!

Melanie Jame Wolf is a visual artist and choreographer who lives in Berlin. She works solo and with friends, making interdisciplinary pieces about power, flows of capital, and the pervasive phenomenon of ‚show business‘ in theatrical, political and everyday contexts. Coming from a background in contemporary performance, Melanie Jame works with text, sound, moving image, choreography, and sculpture. Her work often focuses on specific performance techniques, like impersonation, rehearsal, or stand up, understanding the body as an unruly political riddle. Leaning into a hyper-stylised pop aesthetic, she is invested in humour as a strategy for critical possibility, and in working with language in subliminal and surprising ways. Spaces that have presented her work include Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Kunstmuseum Basel – Gegenwart, KW – Institute of Contemporary Art, HAU – Hebbel am Ufer, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, nGbK, The National 2019: New Australian Art biennial, VAEFF - Film Festival NYC, Arts Santa Monica, Schwules Museum, Sophiensaele, Münchner Kammerspiele, Arts House Melbourne, Kasseler Dokfest, Bärenwzinger Berlin, SOPHIE TAPPEINER, and Institute of Modern Art Brisbane. Melanie Jame was one of 8 nominees for the 2022 Berlin Art Prize.
