Laura Gazzani is an Italian artist active in the field of live performance, specifically dance.
Her research focuses on the relationship between the performer, the environment in which he or she is immersed and the audience, making performance a meeting place in which to live an experience of continuous negotiation between what appears and what happens.
After completing her academic studies, she deepened her practice in the United States and Spain, beginning her career as a dancer collaborating with Elena Giannotti, Meyling Bisogno. In 2018 she begins her journey as an author with CoNfUse, in collaboration with Melania Pallini, through which she is selected in 2020 for Nuove Traiettorie, an action of the Network Anticorpi XL. In 2019 she created in collaboration with four other artists “Flying Carpet,” a project that investigates sustainability strategies for the dance artist profession in the Italian dance system. PEDRO is her first choreographic solo selected for the Vetrina della giovane danza d’autore 2021. In 2020, she is represented by MilanOltre Festival within the TDP International Dance Festival (Dublin) as a dancemaker in leading a group of artists to experiment with new forms of artistic interaction in digital. Currently, her research continues with Walter, a new work in which she was engaged as a choreographer in the 2021 edition of Anghiari Dance Hub, supported in 2022 by the ResiDance XL action of the Network Anticorpi XL and winner of the Danza Urbana XL 2022.
