Hong Kong Exile (Vancouver) + fu-GEN Theatre (Toronto) | In association with Theatre Conspiracy (Vancouver)
Shopping malls become a portal into surreal worlds that carry the nuanced stories of loss and resilience from the Chinese diaspora. This multimedia performance investigates malls as racialized spaces of cultural creation and clash where fashion, food, and commodity tether communities to a vital sense of home.
The draw: Ground-breaking Vancouver interdisciplinary artists collaborate with Governor General’s Award-winning playwright David Yee.
