Hip Hapa and Happening…. Sep 14 onwards

check out the Fringe Festival:

Assaulted FishVancouver Asian Canadian Theatre presents the Henry David Hwang play Bondage… and something called Deep-Fried Curry Perogies…

I just saw Assaulted Fish performing at the Sept 7th Reconciliation Dinner at Floata Restaurant.  And they were bang-on funny… poking lots of fun at multicultural stereotypes and characters like Jacky Chan.

David Henry Hwang is North America's most successful Asian-American playwright.  I have seen his plays FOB, M. Butterfly and Golden Child performed in Vancouver… so I can't miss Bondage.

I eat perogies… I put curry on my popcorn… I deep fry haggis wrapped in won ton dumplings… gotta go!

In an S&M parlor, a dominatrix and her client are clad in costumes
to conceal their faces and ethnicity's. Their disguises allow them to
play out fantasies based on racial stereotypes and sexual mythologies.
Their power games expose the arbitrariness of racially minded thinking
that moves them towards a true intimacy which transcends the bounds of
race.

Deep Fried Curried Perogies

Playwrights Theatre

What do you get when a Jamaican Filipino and a Ukrainian Brit start a
family? A Jalipinukranibritinadian? A Deep Fried Curried Perogy?
Definitely a legacy full of stories, hair trauma and certain
indigestion. Touching, funny, smart – a show for anyone who is black,
white, Ukrainian, Asian, European, flat-chested, short, breathing…
