The Life & Times of Ms. Karen Henderson


”I heard about a woman who’s story so far resembled mine that I thought it was a joke… An autofictional one woman show based on true stories.”

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MS. KAREN HENDERSON is a vibrant fireworks packed with large doses of ironic humour, ambiguity and quite a bit of dance. A multifaceted solo performance that ponders questions of cultural identity, ethnic belonging as well as some curiously held stereotypical notions of dance as a profession.
