“The more we know about our past, the deeper an insight it can give about our future. And this is especially true when you’re working with the young Canadian artists of today.” ~ Nina Lee Aquino on directing David Yee’s “rochdale”
Andrea Mapili and Byron Abalos’ THROUGH THE BAMBOO is a new epic for all ages. Rooted in Philippine mythology, the fantasy play explores death, loss and grief through the eyes of a young Filipino-Canadian girl.
The Drawer Boy is, ultimately, a play about stories and storytelling. Director Nina Lee Aquino’s casting adds potent new dimensions to the stories that are the play’s focus. There are deeper Canadian layers of insight to be mined, thanks to Ms Aquino’s inspired and cross-cultural casting. It’s also laugh-out-loud funny!
