About the artist
Māra Gaņģe is Latvian theatre director who works with puppet theatre and creates her own puppets. She holds a MA in Theatre Art and continues to develop her unique puppet theatre language, including experiments in blending contemporary dance and puppetry. Gaņģe is interested in visuality and visual theatre, as well as puppets and materiality — from the inanimate objects to the materiality of human body.
Kate Krolle is a graduate of the Art Academy of Latvia and the post-graduate of the Audiovisual research centre Le Fresnoy in France, where she has received the Les amis du Fresnoy award. Using a variety of media, the artist examines the relationship between nature and human life along with experience and instincts, as well as loneliness as a permanent state of human being. To capture the fragile and obscure nature of Kate’s work time and contemplation skill is required.
