The New Season

The New Season

Another season of exciting theatre is upon us and our new season brochure is now out.

The season will open with a bang with the ever popular Mary Poppins, followed by a funny and poignant drama, Stereotype High, about the trials and tribulations of being a modern teenager. We will finish off the season at the other end of the age spectrum with After You, a Canadian memory play in which the past and present intermingle.  

Pick up a brochure at the theatre or at Intwined Fibre Arts.  Check out the lineup here.

Sansei: The Storyteller

Sansei: The Storyteller

September 30 at 7:30 pm

It may seem as though a light-hearted look at the Japanese Internment isn’t possible until you understand: “If the Japanese Internment of WWII didn’t happen, I wouldn’t be alive,” says Mark Ikeda.

Sansei: The Storyteller uses dance, theatre, and humour to tell the story of one of Canada’s darkest decisions and how the rampant racism of past generations affected the Japanese community today. Mark Ikeda investigates the social climates and hardships when the Ikeda family was labelled enemy aliens. The silver lining? If not for the internment, Mark Ikeda wouldn’t be alive to tell this story today…

Created and performed by Mark Kunji Ikea.

A show that wowed me was Sansei: The Storyteller. It was simply beautiful. No, Stunning. A great example of organic storytelling punctuated by movement… If you’re a fan of spoken word or storytelling, this is a must see.

This performance of Sensei: the Storyteller is made possible by a BC Multiculturalism Grant.
