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 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.
ARELI MORAN studied dance in Guadalajara, Monterrey and Vancouver. 2015 she founded Expectante dance company and 2017 the stage/studio Espacio Expectante, both in Monterrey, Mexico.
