About this event

The December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor triggered the internment and dispossession of tens of thousands of Japanese-Canadians. In a tale that is both illuminating and profoundly personal, Sansei: The Storyteller weaves together narrative, dance, historical audio, and family recollections in a moving work that CBC hailed as both “timely” and uniquely beautiful".

With compassion and unexpected humour, Kunji Ikeda shares his discovery of where he came from, how his family navigated their histories, and how the rampant racism of past generations has affected the Japanese community today.

"Ikeda says more with the movement of his fingers than many actors do with reams of dialogue."

- Louis B Hobson, Calgary Herald.
