Galina Borissova’s module is over, and the Academy of Dance and Performance is left with the fresh memory of two weeks of playful searching.
It is on this guiding energy that Laura Aris starts working with the students today, a workshop in which, stirred, creative impulses will find new opportunities for expression. Laura Aris is a performer, choreographer and contemporary dance teacher. She has been leading workshops worldwide since 2001. Currently, she is working as a freelance artist, developing her own creative practices, commissioned works, several solos, and many collaborative performances. Her performing experience includes a decade as a member of Wim Vandekeybus’s dance company Ultima Vez, Juan Carlos García’s Lanònima Imperial and General Elèctrica artists collective (1996-1999). In the past years, she has been Wim Vandekeybus’ assistant choreographer and movement coach in several performances directed by Ivo Van Hove (at Dutch National Opera & Ballet in 2017, Comedie Francaise in 2019, and International Theatre Amsterdam in 2021).
