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 dance, narrative, historical audio, and family recollections in a moving work that CBC hailed as both “timely” and “uniquely beautiful.” With compassion and unexpected humour, Kunji Mark 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.
