Shopping malls become a portal into surreal worlds that carry the nuanced stories of loss and resilience from the Chinese diaspora.

No Foreigners is a multimedia performance that meditates on North American Chinese shopping malls as spaces of cultural creation and clash. Multiple storylines begin in a mall and quickly diverge—catapulting us across cities, between Cantonese and English, in and out of the afterlife, through past, present, and future.

Weaving together text, miniatures, digital backdrops and live cameras, No Foreigners examines our changing relationships to these social spaces and the histories, characters, experiences, and ephemera that keep inviting us back.

A collaboration between ground-breaking Vancouver interdisciplinary super group Hong Kong Exile and Governor General’s award-winning playwright David Yee of fu-GEN Theatre.

“an interdisciplinary innovative wonder … a nuanced, layered and exceedingly clever look at the diasporic experience.” – Globe & Mail

“sleek, futuristic and oddly soothing” – NOW Magazine

“bursting at the seams with interesting ideas and cool ways of presenting them” – Georgia Straight
