Ruby Caldwell Kramer loves cats and painting. Matter/Matter + Memory is the first paired performance work for Ruby and Lara. She performed in This Time Will be Different in 2018, a group work created by Lara Kramer and Emilie Monnet.

Lara Kramer is a performer, choreographer, and multidisciplinary artist of mixed Oji-cree and settler heritage. She lives and works in Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang/Montreal. Her choreographic work and research over the last thirteen years have been grounded in intergenerational relations, intergenerational knowledge, and the impacts of the Indian Residential Schools of Canada. She is the first generation in her family to not attend Residential schools.

Matter / Matter + Memory

Generational duo Ruby Caldwell Kramer and Lara Kramer use curiosity and play to plunge into the flesh of remembrance and discovery, charting a living landscape of their relationship in this howl towards what is reimagined.
