Saturday, 4:30pm-5:00pm & Sunday, 12:00pm-12:30pm, VJLS Japanese Hall 

The Tashme Project is a verbatim, or documentary-style play that has been carefully pieced together from over 70 hours of interview time with 20 Nisei, or 2nd generation Japanese Canadians from Vancouver, Toronto, Hamilton, Kingston, Ottawa and Montreal. The play traces the history of the Nisei through childhood, internment and post-WWII resettlement east of the Rockies. Now seniors, the Nisei were children at the time of internment and their memories of adventure and play are presented here in sharp relief to the more common internment narratives of hardship and injustice. 

Tashme Projectはドキュメンタリースタイルの演劇です。バンクーバー、トロント、ハミルトン、キングストン、オタワ、モントリオール在住の日系カナダ人20人と行われた70時間以上にわたるインタビューをもとに丁寧に製作されました。ロッキー山脈東部の収容所、そして第二次世界大戦後の移住を通して、の体験、歴史を辿ります。今では高齢者であるは、収容時代はまだ子供した。彼らの体験した冒険と遊びの思い出、苦難と不平に満ち溢れた一般的に語られる収容生活に垣間見られるひと時の救いとして演出します
