#FMyStrengthSolo by @lauraddances
A solo work created by Laura Dajao influenced by sign language, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Waacking and Locking dance styles.
Laura collaborated with Junior Williams, a singer song writer and producer Simon Kusnierek to write a song of the same name, based on a personal experience of being lost and hurt after a traumatic event in her life. But then finding hope.
The piece uses the song and explores the emotional journey of pain, loss, confusions and the realisation and acceptance of the situation.
It featured in Laura's previous work Missing and is now being used to develop a feature length multi-disciplinary piece with a working title, "Things I love but do not say"
Laura was given a grant from Greenwich International Dance Festival to be able to develop the work further in order to perform at Liberty Festival/National Paralympic Day on 15th July 2017. As the piece is still in development, Laura is only releasing footage to those who contact her directly. Click here to request footage of this performance.
