Currently working on a collaboration with dancer and international Chinese and flying pole artist, Laura Moy.
We are working together with Dream Audience at Chapter, Cardiff, to explore ways of collaborating, in order to generate a playful, supportive, questioning and nurturing environment for growth.
THE ELEMENTS OF LIFE (at Ty Gwyn)
A 25 minute documentary film, celebrating the development of learners communication through movement, play and film sessions, generated by Creative Practitioners work with teachers and learners at Ty Gwyn special school through The Arts Council of Wales’ Lead Creative Schools Scheme.
A documentary style film short, starring Laura Moy and her tiny (ani)mals, with music from Siôn Orgon.
The ‘mals had been in storage for some time, and were coaxed out of their matchboxes for this film. Why? Because Laura had told Lara about them and Lara wanted to meet them. She was sure other people would too.
Although a little shy at first, on the second day of filming we took them into the garden and watched as their relationship unfolded.
Watch this film and other new films from Welsh artists at 1.00pm Saturday 27 June 2015, Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff as part of Wales Dance Platform.
In Autumn 2010 Lara directed and edited her first short film through Dance4Camera3, an initiative run by Welsh Independent Dance at Newport International Film School. The soundtrack features on the B side of a new release ‘Into the Dark’ by composer Sion Orgon.
The movement explored the solitude and ritual of someone waiting to move on and was initially inspired by the remaining residents, squatters and imagined characters of a derelict estate.
The main character moves without sight, on a floor covered with tiny paper squares cut from newspapers. Using tiny scissors, the performer cuts into sheets of newspaper, in an attempt to communicate her feelings.
