Melanie López López started her dance education in dance at an early age.
Being awarded a scholarship for artists in 2009, she moved to London to study at the world class London Contemprary Dance School where she completed a Master of Arts in Contemporary dance.
As a dancer, she is working since more than 10 years all over Europe with companies such as the National company of Ireland, Tanztheater Münster and Ballett Hagen (Germany), Sadlers Wells Theater (England), Peter Schaufuss Ballet (Denmark), Proyecto Titoyaya and Cienfuegos Danza (Spain); and worked with choroeographers such as James Wilton, Alexandra Pirici, Oded Ronen, Gerda König, Henrique Rodovalho, Ravid Abarbanel or Javier de Frutos, amongst others.
Her own creations take as a central aspect the person and society, looking for a personal vocabulary, that draws from the abstrakt representation possilbilities of the human emotions. She presented her work at the Stadttheater Münster, on a tour in North Spain as part of the Festival La RED IV as well as in unconventional spaces like the Weserrenaissance Museum (Lemgo), Ludgerikirche (Coesfeld), St. Paulus Dom (Münster), in the Festival “Me, myself and I” (Madrid) or the Ateneo of Cáceres (Spanien) where she got a mention of honour for her work in progress “Raices Suspendidas”.
This year, she continued working with Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, in the production “77Beethoven” from the Bo Complex Dance Co., made a choreographic research on "Emotional Awareness" thanks to the “Take Care” program of the Fonds Daku at the Theaterlabor Bielefeld, and co-created the dance and theater piece for young adults “vergissmeinnicht” which was performed at the Theater in Pumpenhaus (Münster) and the Ost-Passage Theater (Leipzig).
