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 who migrated from a remote First Nations community into an unfamiliar urban environment as a young woman. The piece explores the effects of cultural disorientation, assimilation, and the self-destructive behavior she endured.
