Description

Presented by Indigenous Contemporary Scene, Native Girl Syndrome is inspired by the experience of Lara Kramer's own grandmother’s migration from a remote First Nations community into an unfamiliar urban environment as a young woman. It is at once the story of one woman and the story of many, depicted 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 while exploring the effects of cultural disorientation, assimilation and self-destructive behavior.

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 45 days ago

Native Girl Syndrome is a unique piece of theatre that captures prejudice, pain and social exclusion. Through almost no dialogue and on a stage littered with, well, litter, Lara Kramer directs a show that combines moments of curiosity, power and tragedy to create a depiction of suffering like no other....
