Hong Kong Exile: Work-in-progress performance of “No Foreigners”

Thursday, 18 May 2017, 7:00 p.m.

Please join us for a work-in-progress performance of No Foreigners, created by Hong Kong Exile (Vancouver) and fu-GEN Theatre (Toronto), produced in association with Theatre Conspiracy (Vancouver). No Foreigners is a multimedia performance examining Chinese shopping malls as racialized spaces of cultural creation and clash. Seven original stories begin 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. This project attempts to unpack what is at the heart of “Chineseness” and what the future can hold for all of us as visitors on unceded Indigenous land.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome! CUAG is an accessible space, with barrier-free washrooms and elevator.

Formed in 2011, Hong Kong Exile is a Vancouver-based interdisciplinary arts company whose members are Natalie Tin Yin Gan, Remy Siu and Milton Lim. Hong Kong Exile is committed to creating vital and innovative art through collaborative investigation across disciplinary boundaries and outside the formal and aesthetic traditions of dance, theatre, new music and multimedia.
