On December 7 1941, an attack on Pearl Harbour triggered events in Canada that are among the darkest in our history – the internment and dispossession of tens of thousands of Japanese Canadians.

Through an engaging blend of dance, spoken word, and loads of humour, Mark Ikeda weaves a tale that is both illuminating and profoundly personal. Sansei: The Storyteller offers Ikeda’s observations about the internment, his own discovery of where he came from, and how Japanese Canadians found peace.
