Laura Carella was born and raised in Mississauga, Ontario. She’s another member of the Mississauga Arts Council who is now spreading her work on an international scale.
Growing up with dance, she followed it to the State University of New York, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude from with a BFA in dance. She then went on to spend a semester studying abroad at the Western Australian Academy of the Performing Arts.
Laura has performed works by Doug Varone, Kevin Wynn, Deborah Lohse, Lewis Major and Colin Connor both nationally and internationally. Her career has since let her to Seattle where she now live. She has performed with Colemxn Pester at the Seattle International Dance Festival and performed works by Kate Wallich, Tom Weinberger and Sidra Bell as part of YC2 New Dances.
In 2016 Laura joined Kristen Carcone’s immersive work 4-7-8 which continues to tour across New York and Toronto. In addition to her performance career, Laura is a choreographer, curator and educator. Laura has taught master classes throughout Canada, Australia and the United States for students of all ages. She is on faculty with TOES for Dance, a non-profit organization helping to foster the dance community around North America.
TOES for Dance and 4-7-8 are in Mississauga this week, with performances through the weekend (November 30, December 1, December 2).
Based on the breathing technique made popular by Dr. Andrew Weil, 4-7-8 is a five-part multi-disciplinary performance including dance, visual art, live music, audio installations, and theatre. Audiences will move from room to room as a collective, experiencing the power of interpretation and connection.
