The Secret Roots of Human Hair
When Victoria Melody was competing in beauty pageants for a previous show a hairdresser advised her that she needed hair extensions. Freaked out by wearing a piece of somebody else’s body, she set out on an extraordinary adventure to find out exactly where this hair comes from.
Victoria’s boundless curiosity takes a live audience from the temples of India to the shopping malls of Russia, via hair salons and forensics labs on a humorous, moving and serendipitous journey around a World in miniature.
There is a saviour in the shape of a Bollywood financier, the most expensive wedding to have ever taken place, a Celebrity Big Brother contestant, and hair. Lots of hair. Sacks of it.
With dramaturgy from Rachel Chavkin (The TEAM) and directed by Paul Hodson. Hair Peace is a comedic exploration from an unlikely sleuth whose personal odyssey provides astonishing insights into ethics, diverse cultures and the personal realities of the global economy
Victoria Melody must rank as one of the most charming independent performance-makers in Britain —
smart, warm, unpretentiously funny and informative, just like the piece itself.
Part lecture, part personal odyssey, Victory Melody’s show about the origins of her hair extensions
is unassuming but totally charming.
Her work manages to unite the personal and the political in a seamless way.
Subtle, charming, and very funny, Victoria Melody is a skilled and engaging narrator for this documentary style story.
