OFFTA - NATIVE GIRL SYNDROME - LARA KRAMER
Information on the activity
May 29, 2014 to May 30, 2014
NGS is a foray into street culture, inviting the audience into the very heart of loss, alienation and the various addictions of those who inhabit it. Lara Kramer brings us a raw performance in which the dancers embody with great depth individuals separated from themselves, lost in the citadel of artificial nirvanas.
