About LJ Projects
LJ Projects is a dance theatre company established in 2014 by Melissa Lanham, initially under a different name. The most notable work created by LJ Projects has been Vincent, with its initial development created on the Sunshine Coast back in 2014, it is still a current and touring work today. Initially an independent sole trader consisting of Melissa, the company has now expanded to include both professional, youth and community initiatives. 2019 has seen an exciting year of growth and LJ Projects only has plans to continue moving up.
LJ Projects strives to create moving and emotive dance theatre, unifying rich visual design with provocative text and original sound scores and music. We address the fact that theatre works in both directions, not only in the giving of the performers and creative’s, but the audience who also share in their experiences of what they are seeing.
Our process is to take something that fuels the imagination, then to experiment, interpret and structure improvisation and task work around the subject. Using dance, text and characterization; framing and reframing answers and challenging assumptions of how something is initially perceived and placing equal emphasis on the design and the portrayal of all elements in the space.
