La postal de nuestra existencia
In an intimate exploration, Areli Moran examines the significance of hair as a repository of social norms, identity and desire. Why is head hair associated with beauty and seduction in most societies, while other body hair is perceived as repulsive? While Moran used to find her own hair disgusting, today a playful curiosity prevails. Between gentleness and electrifying tension, she exposes herself to a relentless confrontation with her own body.

The hair; long hair, below the shoulder; the hair that constituted itself as an entity; the hair to suggest, to provoke; the hair that have movement; the hair in diverse tones and textures; the hair that cover the face; the hair as a costume; the hair that empower you, the one that change your aspect; not the hair that is super short. The hair when is connecting to sensuality; the hair as an unique body element that is internal and external; the hair as a work tool; the hair to hypnotize; the hair and its monotony, the wait and its transformation.

LA VERSIÓN DE NADIE
A dance performance, which transgress and restructures the way we talk and think about our own nature. It will take you on a gold shaded, hypnotizing journey. It represents luxury, ambiguity and desires.
The audience meets a monster, which is gender-free and curious. In some moments the monster is strong, in others weak. The monster reflects beauty and ugliness, at the same time. A multifaceted portray of the monster that lies within us.
