Sharing Theatre, Sharing Culture


Presented by PTC, Heart of the City Festival, Hua Foundation and DTES Neighbourhood House

Join us for a conversation of how theatre contributes to the fabric of Vancouver’s Chinatown – where food and language intersect on Coast Salish territory.

The event begins with readings in English and Cantonese from Jovanni Sy’s play A Taste of Empire/食盡天下, translated into Cantonese by Derek Chan. The play puts us into the audience of a fictional cooking show, and reveals truths about global food security and inequity while the master chef’s apprentice creates a fish dish. With Derek Chan, Bob Sung, Jovanni Sy and Andrea Yu.

Hosted by Kathleen Flaherty. There will be dumplings.
