Sansei: The Storyteller

Cloudsway Dance Theatre—The Rachel Browne Theatre

A magnetic performer who beautifully, gently and movingly shares ancestral stories, which include a shameful, yet important-to-remember piece of Canadian history, Japanese internment camps. Powerful.

Sansei: The Storyteller

Cloudsway Dance Theatre—The Rachel Browne Theatre

Storytelling and dance interwoven to tell the tale of Japanese internment, it’s past present and future. Deeply heartfelt, this show manages to demonstrate both the scarring pain such a horrific act caused, and the happiness born from perseverance through it. Funny, informative and heart-wrenching, this show is a must see in a country full of the invisible scars of horrors wrought within living memory.
