Gorgeous Tongue | FTA

Friday, May 31 , 9 p.m. to Monday, Jun 3 , 8:30 p.m.

From May 22 to June 5, 2024, the 18th edition of Festival TransAmériques (FTA) will immerse audiences in a unique sensory and artistic experience!

Anchored in this world and orbiting a universe beyond, a lone performer unfolds memories on stage through rhythmic scores. For Gorgeous Tongue, Lara Kramer invites Nêhiyaw/Métis dance artist Jeanette Kotowich to embody stories, dreams, and songs that stem from Lara’s Anishinaabe lineage. Entering Kramer’s artistic constellation, Kotowich performs multiple movement sequences to embrace the past and usher in a new world. Gorgeous Tongue is a celebration of Indigenous transmission, transformation, and futurity.

Born out of two artists’ chemistry and kinship, this solo oscillates between the need for regulation and the discovery of a new appetite. Following Windigo (2018, FTA) and Them Voices (2021 and 2022, FTA), Lara Kramer explores the need and drive for pleasure and the strength of instinctual connections.
