When Victoria Melody competed in beauty pageants for her award-winning show, Major Tom, a hairdresser advised she wear hair extensions.
Freaked out by wearing a piece of somebody else’s body, she embarked on an extraordinary adventure to find whose hair this was.
The outcome is Hair Peace, based on a true story about the search for three unrelated strangers from India and Russia connected by DNA.
The hour-long, one-woman show comes to the Spring in Havant on Thursday at 8pm.
Filled with humour, Victoria fully immerses herself into the worlds she is exploring – featuring real footage she gives an insight into the rituals of these communities.
Hair Peace aims to look at how one woman’s situation through birthplace, class and religion can be so radically different from another’s yet linked by having worn the same hair. In the past, Victoria has become a pigeon racer, a northern soul dancer, a championship dog handler and a beauty queen.
