Mixed Company Theatre presents SPRING MOON / 春明

Mixed Company Theatre presents SPRING MOON / 春明

This April, Mixed Company Theatre is proud to present the second installment of its InterGEN Project, SPRING MOON / 春明 !

Based on the real-life experiences of the Toronto Chinese community, Spring Moon tells the story of a resilient immigrant peoples through the eyes of three Chinese grandmothers who survived hardship and crossed oceans to give their granddaughters a better life. Although separated by differences of language, culture, and distance, the unconditional love that exists between grandmothers and their granddaughters is a connection that cannot be broken. Spring Moon reveals to us that to find out who we are, we will have to understand where we come from.

Spring Moon is an exploration of Chinese intergenerational relationships in Toronto and features community performers and emerging artists from across the GTA. The show was created with the input of Chinese youth and seniors from Eastview Community Centre, Scadding Court Community Centre, Broadview Manor, The Phoenix Arts Academy, the Markham youth and Toronto Community Housing.

The show is presented in Cantonese, Mandarin, English, and French with Chinese and English surtitles.
