Sansei: The Storyteller

Mark Kunji Ikeda

On December 7 1941, an attack on Pearl Harbour triggered events in Canada that are 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 Kunji Ikeda weaves a tale that is both 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.

This light-hearted examination uses dance, theatre & humour to weave this enduring tale.

This award-winning play has toured across Canada and we are thrilled to present it with Lunchbox Theatre as part of the 33rd annual High Performance Rodeo.
