LA POSTAL DE NUESTRA EXISTENCIA
(The postcard of our existence)
A poetic construction to honor a part of your body that contains the history of your days. Of your culture. Of your desires. Of your identity.
First exploration in the studio was in 2016 during a residency at Lake studios.
On coming back to Mexico I explored the idea with more dancers, and I got fascinated by the possibilities to explore with other people ́s hair/body and to create fantasy characters with extraordinary hair. This process leads me to the creation of the piece (ain)farbig with 15 artists on stage.
Nevertheless, I didn’t abandon the idea to create a solo work on myself because of how
personal and intimate role played hair in my own story.
Nowadays hair represents power to me, all body hair.
I did not love the hair, as I do now.
Think about this, we all have it.

This work started questioning my self what means femininity to me?
Is a work that focus on hair, state it as a body part that empower femininity on my own body. Is an exploration influenced by sexuality, masculinity and transformation. The develop is supported with objects that helps to intensify and modify image on stage.
I was the starting research that became the piece (ain)farbig , where the focused was strictly the hair and it slope, including 12 performers on stage representing characters that wear and use and talk about hair.
Recently Areli back is back to the roots of this research and continue with her first goal what was create a solo work and still a work in progress.
