SANSEI: THE STORYTELLER – Mark Ikeda

“If the Japanese Internment didn’t happen, I wouldn’t be alive today.”

Mark Ikeda’s Sansei: The Storyteller grew from this one true statement. Using dance, theatre, and humour, Ikeda investigates the social climates and hardships from a time when his own family was labelled enemy aliens. He delves into one of Canada’s darkest decisions, and unwraps how the racism of past generations has affected the Japanese community today.

Mark Ikeda creates original performances that combine narrative and dance. His training in dance and theatre has developed a unique methodology, combining story, imagination, and choreography that lead to being named the 2015 Emerging Artist by Calgary Arts Development Authority.

Mark is an ensemble member of the Dancers’ Studio West and has taught at the University of Calgary and the Rosebud School of the Arts. He has also served as the Artistic Director of MoMo Dance Theatre.

This production was nominated for Best Solo Performance at the 2015 Calgary Critters and won Best of Fest at the 2014 Calgary Fringe Festival.

“Performers and audience alike were thoroughly engaged by Mark’s weaving of a personal story with a tale of profound historical impact. Sansei is storytelling at it’s finest; sophisticated, meaningful, moving, and humorous.” – Laurie Fife, Ottawa Storytellers Society
