Tuesday, January 16 – Sunday, January 21: EMPIRE OF THE SON
A Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre Production
Presented by Alberta Theatre Projects & One Yellow Rabbit as part of the 32nd Annual High Performance Rodeo
Empire of the Son is a funny and poignant autobiographical one-man show by former CBC broadcaster Tetsuro Shigematsu about his rocky relationship with his emotionally reserved father. Through visually striking live, cinematic vignettes, Shigematsu re-enacts moments from his father’s incredible personal history, from the ashes of Hiroshima to swinging 1960’s London, and also uses audio recordings and photographs to paint an intimate portrait of their evolving connection and the deep-seated love for each other that they both struggle to express. Audience Considerations: Mature subject matter. Suggested for ages 12+. Running Time: Approximately 75 minutes.
Evening shows begin at 7:30PM, with a 2:00PM matinee on Sunday. GET TICKETS
