Meet the characters dismantling taboos around death in this intimate auditory experience

Victoria Melody is passionate about other people’s passions. 

In The Enthusiasts, audiences are invited into two extraordinary communities for an intimate auditory experience. Taking place at two secret locations across Brighton, these site-specific events uncover communities on the brink of change as their traditional methods clash with new ways of thinking. Join Victoria on this unique adventure into the secret and the sacred. 

Funeral Directors introduces us to Brighton’s death positivity community. Meet the characters concerned with dismantling the taboos around talking about death. For several years, Victoria has embedded herself in this most un-British of British communities, learning their behaviours, rituals and skills. Join Victoria on this audio journey around Brighton’s funeral parlours, finding light where others see only darkness.

Victoria Melody will also be presenting Pigeon Fanciers at Brighton Festival. Click here to learn more.

'Victoria Melody must rank as one of the most charming independent performance makers in Britain — smart, warm, and unpretentiously funny.'
