Centaur's Brave New Looks
The Tashme Project: The Living Project
November 15 to 24, 2018.
The Tashme Project: The Living Archives is a one-act verbatim theatre piece that traces the history and common experience of the Nisei (or 2nd Generation Japanese Canadians) through childhood, WW2 internment and post-war resettlement east of the Rockies. The Nisei, now in their 70’s and 80’s, were children at the time of internment and their stories of adventure and play are presented in sharp relief to the more common internment narratives of hardship and injustice.
From November 6 to 25, 2018.
Second in our Essential Series is the 2018 Tony-nominated play, The Children, by British phenomenon, Lucy Kirkwood, recipient of the 2018 UK Writers’ Guild Award. A stellar cast—Geordie Johnson, Laurie Paton, and Fiona Reid—grace Centaur’s stage for a witty yet provocative look at our responsibility to the planet, each other and future generations.
