Lara Kramer is returning to Kia Mau Festival 2023 after her Kia Mau premiere with the haunting Windigo in 2019. The Pantograph Punch called Windigo leaves you with a cold dread…
This solo performance explores the inter-relationality between land, the artist’s body and her memory and future memory, drawing on notions of performance, social critique and cultural resistance.
Kramer addresses a world where histories come together to assess the consequences of our actions on future generations.
Laying out in all possible directions. What has been exerted, and what is failed. What is not yet seen or dreamt of. All is together, intersecting in Them Voice.
The artist strives to re-imagine new pathways connected to future ancestors in their flight and journey.
