Melanie Maria (1993, Haarlem) is a performance artist. In 2010 she started to study at the Dance Teacher/Maker department at the Amsterdam University of the Arts, where she developed as a choreographer and director.

Thus, her interests grow beyond her skills and creating performance art at the dance academy inspired her to study Fine Art (now: Base for Experiment, Art & Research) at ArtEZ University of the Arts Arnhem. Here she graduated in 2019 with her 9-hour durational performance Never learnt to share, which was also awarded with the 2nd price of the VKC Award 2019. After graduation Melanie Maria was invited to create several performances for Nothing To Sell, a one-week exhibition in Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Rome, Italy, and in 2020 her installation It still remains and her artistry got awarded with the Jan Naaijkensprijs 2020.
