Laura Faiß

Laura Sophie Faiß was working as a residency artist in STUDIO2 from 23.10. till 05.11.2022

Laura is a freelance choreographer based in Berlin.

In her artistic practice, she deals with the perspective of minorities and social inequality. In particular, the experiences of double and multiple identities of so-called second-generation migrants are the main focus of the artistic research for the Autumn Residency:

"In my work, I am concerned with the question of how the groups to which we belong or seem to belong shape our experiences and our bodies. Currently, I am focusing on the experience of second-generation migrants in Germany. I am collecting their stories and experiences and want to translate them into movement practice and dance.

During my residency I would like to continue this research. The question of what the act of collecting, arranging and archiving means for dealing with this material guides me. How is material selected, collected, contextualised? I am documenting my process with a blog, on which I publish videos and texts about my research."
