Laura Laura is a dance performance for two, a fucked-up manifesto on gender based on research into female performers in pop music. It is grounded in our love of music, our disgust at the promotion of oppressive stereotypes in mainstream culture used as a vehicle for systematic misogyny, and our belief in live performance as a potential site of resistance.
immigrants and animals are inviting two other people to join us in performing a double bill of Laura Laura entitled Laura Laura Double Penetration. We will spend some days together sharing the score (structure) of Laura Laura and our thoughts and motivations for the dances.
