State of Body: A Workshop for Performers with Lara Kramer

In this workshop, Artist-in-Residence Lara Kramer will develop the physicality and theatricality of each individual. Working in solo form, participants will be encouraged to respond instinctually to lead explorations. She will guide the group through a series of exercises that embody themes of distortion and fixation, facilitating a space where connections to sensation and environment can be made.

Time will be allotted to develop and expand on personal connections made, deepening an awareness to the layering within state of body.

“My experience working with Lara Kramer and her team was greatly inspiring. To be able through movement explore deep intense subjects is eye opening and for me created a pathway to generate honest organic work. It opens the door to being able to share our stories, history and experiences. Thank you for such an amazing workshop.” – Nyla Carpentier

     Lara Kramer is the artistic director and choreographer Lara Kramer Danse, a company based in Montreal. Kramer received her BFA in Contemporary Dance at Concordia University, Montreal (2008).

Kramer is a First Nation dancer and choreographer whose work is intimately linked to memory and her Aboriginal roots. Working with strong visuals and narrative, Kramer’s work pushes the strength and fragility of the human spirit. Her work is political and potent, often examining political issues surrounding Canada and First Nations Peoples. Kramer has been recognized as a Human Rights Advocate through the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre.

Her work has been presented at the OFFTA, Montreal (2008 & 2014), The First Peoples Festival, Montreal (2009), Festival Vue Sur la Reléve, Montreal (2010),The Talking Sticks Festival, Vancouver (2011 & 2013), Canada Dance Festival, Ottawa (2011 & 2014), The Banff Centre, Banff (2011), MAI (Montreal arts intercultural), Montreal (2010 & 2011), Public Energy, Peterborough (2012), Planet IndigenUS, Toronto (2012), Dancing on the Edge, Vancouver (2013 & 2014), Tangente, Montreal (2013), New Dance Horizons, Regina (2014), and Alberta Aboriginal Arts, Edmonton (2014). Her acclaimed work Fragments (2009) inspired by her mother’s stories of the Indian Residential Schools of Canada, has brought her recognition as one of Canada’s bright new talents.

Her new creation NGS (“Native Girl Syndrome”) received a commission from The Canada Dance Festival,  a creation residency at Studio Marie Chouinard and at Conseil des arts de Montreal.

Public Energy presented Kramer's work,of good moral character,in February of 2012.
