OF GOOD MORAL CHARACTER

Lara Kramer’s artistic approach explores the strength and resilience of the human spirit. Kramer gives free rein to the silent, unspoken emotions in her creative process. In of good moral character the aboriginal choreographer explores the private places of the home, examining the intimacy of domestic relationships with themes such as obsession, instability, isolation and violence. Whether dancing solo or in duet with the ever astonishing Lael Stellick, this work is an articulation of sensuality, vulnerability and explosive rage. Together the two dancers explore the tension between the need for self expression within the constraints of the conventional home, showing the intensity of the relationship and the isolation that sometimes results from them.
