Biography

Laurence is moved by all human struggles, exchanges and interactions. Theatre being her main background, she is also interested in the particularities of acting, from the stage to the screen. This artist wants people to be moved by her work, to feel involved. She wants them to be curious, to ask questions, to take interest, to take action, to run towards each other, to unite and to exchange. It’s with this approach that Laurence creates Parvis, the first short film she wrote and directed while also producing and editing.
