Native Girl Syndrome
Summerhall Festival - Bruford at Summerhall
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.
