Polito (live), Cooper Dodge, Kitty Whip, Juicy Velour and friends (live), Feline Fine and Goo DJ
Melt returns to gaso upstairs with another night showcasing some of Melbourne's finest DJ's, artists and producers, featuring:
"A meeting of dance and music, working together to continually reinvent and reinterpret one another, introspectively reacting and evolving through a continuous form. Moments of euphoria emerge out of and supersede the mundane. Forms align, hyperextending into a blurry dissonance before snapping back into sublime harmony."
Polito closed the MONOSS stage at Strawberry Fields 2018, entrancing the crowd with their unique blend of live techno and contemporary dance. The group was also the winner of "Best Music" at Melbourne Fringe Festival 2018. We're very excited to host them for Melt vol. 4.
Cooper has played a prominent role over years as both a producer and a DJ in the Melbourne minimal scene under his old moniker of Peruw. and now under his own name. From Revs to the Breakfast Club, he's a veteran of bringing dance floors to life.

Having recently finished honours within the School of Architecture & Urban Design at RMIT, Sharni is now working across moving image/video for screen based outcomes rather than built additions to space. By scouting sites through driving, spending time physically documenting within then more intimately in post, becomes a process based practice.
Approaching archived content as something to be dealt with responsively through layers, her latest work is a music video for Pillow Pro. Having treated footage shot and given to her by the duo themselves, approaching projects as though they have a design brief, to degrade the body into an echo.
Our first instalment of MELT CINEMA will be running all night long, featuring a selection of works by local filmmakers, visual artists and dancers including past melt contributors.

Plus, experience the surprise of melt’s Fish TV debut.
We aim to create a space where all dancers feel safe and free to express themselves. If someone's making you uncomfortable, let one of the crew or any venue staff know and it will be dealt with.
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people as the traditional owners of the land on which we gather and pay tribute to elders past, present and future.
The venue is located up a flight of stairs, DM with any further Qs re: accessibility.
