Victoria Melody chose those two most exclusive of interests; pigeon fancying and the Northern Soul scene, as the subjects for this truly engaging, and often hilarious, new show. Beginning with stories of her misfit childhood, she chose to ingratiate herself into the world of homing pigeons and presented a respectfully mischievous, outsider’s video montage of her subjects. The title comes from her hen night at a Cleethorpes soul weekender and her subsequent quest to learn how to dance in the living rooms of several dance champions. The show’s finale drew huge cheers as Victoria talc’d the floor and delivered a no-holds-barred dance display. Original and inspirational.
