ABOUT LARA KRAMER
Lara Kramer is of mixed Oji-Cree and settler heritage, and a choreographer and performer whose work is intimately linked to her memory and Aboriginal roots. She received her BFA in Contemporary Dance at Concordia University, Montreal (2008). Working with strong visuals and narrative, her work pushes the strength and fragility of the human spirit. Lara’s work is political and potent, often examining political issues surrounding Canada and First Nations Peoples. She has been recognized as a Human Rights Advocate through the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre.
Said The Globe and Mail, “Kramer is an aboriginal choreographer, but her works have universal resonance… [she] is a talent to watch. She wears her heart on her sleeve, which translates into dance theatre that is as vulnerable as it is emotional.”
Lara’s works have included NGS (Native Girl Syndrome) (2013) which was met with critical acclaim across the country; her solo work Tame (2015) which she showed in its very nascent stage at Native Earth’s 2015 Weesageechak Begins to Dance Annual Festival of Indigenous Works; and, most recently, Windigo which was performed at Festival TransAmériques, Montréal in May 2018.
