In 1942, over 24,000 Japanese Canadians were removed from their homes. Over 8,000 of them were taken to the barns at Hastings Park, with women and children housed in animal stalls. A recreated stall becomes a powerfully immersive space where their stories are brought to life. The first stop on a national tour, Japanese Problem invites Toronto audiences to experience the past, and hear it being echoed today.

Join fellow alumni and Department Head Stephen Heatley for drinks and canapés at the Young Centre followed by a special performance of Japanese Problem and a Talk Back with the artists.
