Sansei: The Story Teller

Hosted by Lunchbox Theatre


160-115 9 Avenue Southeast, Southeast Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada

January 22 at 12:00 PM

On December 7, 1941, an attack on Pearl Harbour triggered events in Canada that may easily be described as among the darkest in our history – the internment and dispossession of tens of thousands of Japanese Canadians. Through an engaging blend of dance, spoken word and loads of humour, Mark Ikeda weaves a tale that is illuminating and profoundly personal. Sansei: The Storyteller offers Ikeda’s observations about the internment, his own discovery of where he came from, and how Japanese Canadians found peace.
