Fuel presents Iris Brunette

By Melanie Wilson 

A sortie into a curious cityscape of the future past, featuring Iris Brunette: part-time traveling refugee, part compassionate voyeur. A warmly mournful and disarmingly engaging piece, inspired by the film ‘La Jeteé’ by Chris Marker. 

Commissioned and developed at BAC.
Originally funded by Arts Council England. 

#IrisBrunette

"There are few more compelling presences than that of Melanie Wilson."

The Guardian 

"****  Iris is frail and strong, shy and bold, her stories suffused with impossible beauty but dripping with inexpressible dread."

Time Out

"**** Wilson emerges as a remarkable poet in word and sound, going straight to the heart of that longing for a last, precious touch of intimacy before dying, which is one of the key emotions of our time."

The Scotsman

"It could be anybody's year, but I reckon that it could be Melanie Wilson's."
