Event Notes

Enemy Lines is a live dance performance that looks at how a climate of fear led to the incarceration of Japanese Canadians. Suddenly deemed a threat after the Pearl Harbour attack in 1941, over 22,000 Canadians of Japanese descent were forcibly removed from the coastline of British Columbia - their lives forever altered.

Held by curiosity, choreographer Mayumi Lashbrook looks back at the actions taken against her family and illuminates the cycles of fear based oppression that still affect us today. Enemy Lines is a tender reminder of the fractures of our collective past and the possibilities for our shared future.
