Mel Ree (Caramelsauce) trained as an actor and identifies as a dancer, poet and fierce woman. Born in Papua New Guinea to the daughter of a chief, her ancestors sit at the base of her spine spurring her on to tell her story, hoping to spark wildfires within listeners that burn down differences, uniting us in our pain and understanding of this human condition.

Studio projects:

  • To continue exploring my personal style in writing poetry/ short stories/ scripts.
  • To create a harmonious collection of poetry suitable to be housed together in my first book.
  • To write a first draft of a theatre show for young adults/children that speaks to issues relating to being raised in a household where trauma is very present and holds insight into choosing to become a healthy adult, freeing oneself of intergenerational trauma.
