NGS ("Native Girl Syndrome")

2013

Duration: 1hr

Lara Kramer’s new creation NGS ("Native Girl Syndrome") dives into street culture, as enacted in a raw theatrical performance by Karina Iraola and Angie Cheng. Their drug filled, disassociated personas take the audience on a dynamic journey of addiction, loss and alienation.      

NGS ("Native Girl Syndrome") is inspired by the experience of Kramer's own grandmother of having migrated from a remote First Nations community into an unfamiliar urban environment as a young woman. The piece explores the effects of cultural disorientation, assimulation and the self-destructive behaviour she endured.
