VANCITY CULTURE LAB07 Feb '18 to 17 Feb '18 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
The Cultch is thrilled to present No Foreigners, a new interdisciplinary work by Hong Kong Exile and fu-GEN Theatre (Toronto), produced in association with Theatre Conspiracy (Vancouver) playing February 7-17 at the Vancity Culture Lab.
Through live performance and a micro-to-macro camera apparatus, No Foreigners considers Chinese shopping malls as racialized spaces of cultural creation and clash. An interdisciplinary collaboration from Hong Kong Exile and fu-GEN Theatre (Toronto), two leading Asian-Canadian performing arts companies, No Foreigners is an exciting new world premiere with writing from Governor General's Award laureate for English Drama, David Yee.
Several original stories manifest in a mall and quickly diverge—catapulting across cities, between Cantonese and English, in and out of the afterlife, and through past, present, and future. No Foreigners weaves together text, miniatures, and media design as it attempts to unpack what is at the heart of “Chineseness” and what the future can hold for all of us as visitors and settlers.
