Event Notes


The most fun you can have learning about the Japanese Canadian Internment!

With compassion and unexpected humour, Kunji Ikeda tells the tale of the hardships faced by the Japanese community in Canada. Weaving together dance, narrative theatre, historical audio, and family recollections, Sansei: The Storyteller is a moving piece of work that illuminates the rampant racism faced by the Japanese community since the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. A multi-award winning masterpiece from a storyteller like no other, Sansei shares Ikeda’s discovery of where he came from, how his family navigated their histories, and all that the past generations have faced. This uplifting message of hope and perseverance redefines the way we tell stories and is not to be missed.
