Laura Kriefman creates award-winning interactive spectacles world-wide that fuses movement and technology. Her work has been recognised with numerous international fellowships including Questlab, Mozilla XR Studio, PRS Female Innovator in Music (keychange.eu), INK , WIRED Magazine and the Clore Cultural Leadership.
Kicking the Mic showcases her new visual and groundbreaking sonic instrument, that allows her to compose and choreograph simultaneously.
The explosion of a reverberating stomp punctuates the dark. Simultaneously my dress and I explode in light. Together we hold this moment as we listen to the sound fading, seen as receding light.

Performed from Tokyo to San Francisco, each percussive tap-step will transport you into a delightful and colourful live performance. Kicking the Mic is a hybrid, super-human, instrumental and vocal performance for those who like a splash of sublime magic with their technology and live music. In every city, the audience will step into a high-octane, live dialogue between light, sound, movement and technology. Expanding into a multi-performer show we will be touring worldwide.
