Set in the garden of the Musée d’art contemporain, this solo performance explores the relationship between the artist’s body and her memory, calling upon notions of exploration performance, social critique, and cultural resistance. In this constrained urban space, she excavates a world where stories come together to assess the consequences of our actions on future generations.
The artists Lara Kramer positions herself inside shared experiences with her mother and explores hopes, dreams, and future thriving. The title Them Voice is interpreted as multiple voices, stories, imagery, that are imbedded in the artist’s body and that are anchored with her mother and family relations. The multigenerational experiences that come before and proceed the artists, future dreaming becomes the crafting of fuel towards new rhythms, new modes of mobility.
Them Voices searches to be inside the place that carries memory and future imagination. Laying out in all possible directions. What has been exerted, what is failed. What is not yet seen or dreamt of. All is together, intersecting in Them Voice. Strives to re-imagine new pathways connected to future ancestors in their flight and journey.
