An artist, his mother, a scholar, and a creepy guy with a moustache – Highlighting the unexpected moments of joy and wonder in the face of hardship and injustice, The Tashme Project chronicles the experiences of the Nisei, second generation Japanese Canadians. Now in their 70s and 80s, they were children during the Second World War and subjected to Canada’s strict internment laws. The unique memories they share of interment and post-War resettlement offer a crucial and little known glimpse into Canada’s shameful wartime past, while offering glimmers of hope for the future.

Based on the true story of Marie Joseph Angélique, an enslaved Black woman who was hanged for setting fire to Montréal in 1734, Lorena Gale’s award-winning 1998 classic draws a line from Canada’s relatively unknown past to our contemporary struggles with racism.

Beautiful Man Image Factory Theatre

Beautiful Man

A scathing satire about the portrayal of women in film and television, three friends take us on a whirlwind tour of an upside-down world there women are the hunters, not the hunted; the heroes, not the victims; the subjects, not the objects, all while gazing at the semi-nude Beautiful Man. You’ll never watch your favourite binge-worthy shows the same way again.
