“Japanese Problem” Site Responsive Experience

PNE Livestock Barn  (Get Directions)
188 N Renfrew St
Vancouver, BC Canada
7pm & 8:30pm Tuesday-Saturday, September 13-29

JAPANESE PROBLEM is the award-winning, site-responsive experience about the Japanese Canadian incarceration at Hastings Park.

JAPANESE PROBLEM invites a small audience into a stall, which residents have turned into a temporary home and place of wonder, as they are filled with the uncertainty of their next destination.

The piece exists in the contemporary moment simultaneously, where evidence of Hastings Parks’ former tenants has been erased, where survivors are uncertain if they want their names included in a memorial; and where refugees to North America are being treated in a fashion that is terrifyingly familiar.

Show times:

Tuesday-Saturday 7pm & 8:30pm

Saturday Sept 22: 4pm matinee | Saturday Sept 29: 1pm matinee

All performances followed by an audience discussion.
