Make the invisible visible

from the inside of a closed room,
hidden from within
from the ugly
the most intimate
from the unspoken
from what you may not want even had a name.

The possibility to inhabit myself and from there become something new.

Open Wound is part of a series of solo-MicroActions. In her work, Laura develops an ongoing dialogue between contemporary dance, other artistic disciplines and spectators: she starts with the reflections on personal issues and transcends them from private spheres into the public and collective, creating evocative, moving images of great beauty and emotional power.

Laura Aris is a performer, choreographer and recognised international teacher. Her performing experience includes a decade as a formal member of the renowned Belgium dance Company Wim Vandekeybus/Ultima Vez. Before that she was in the Spanish dance company Lanònima Imperial and worked with General Elèctrica artistic collective in several performances of Tomás Aragay. For the past seven years she has been a freelance artist, developing her own creative practices. She received the Lladró Award for the Outstanding Dancer at Festival de Valencia (ES), 1999.

The realization of this guest performance was suported by Accion Cultural Espanola - program ACE/PICE.
