Using dance, theatre, and humour, Mark Kunji Ikeda takes a light-hearted look into the story of one of Canada’s darkest decisions.

An award-winning performance, Sansei: The Storyteller looks at how racism of past generations has affected our community today. Created and performed by Ikeda, the show grew from the notion that if the Japanese Internment of the Second World War didn’t happen, he wouldn’t be alive today.

Sansei: The Storyteller runs November 1 to 4, 2017 at the Motel Theatre, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE). Tickets are $25 in advance or pay-what-you-can at the door.
