SFU theatre: Gramma (Jan 17-19)

It may not feel like it, but here at SFU we are about to begin our Spring 2007 performance series!

presented by the school for the contemporary arts, in partial completion of a Masters in Fine Arts

"Gramma", written & preformed by Maki Yi.
Weaving an ancient Korean folktale into the story of her immigration to Canada, Maki Yi creates a modern fable of dislocation and culture shock. Her account of her first home - a dark and dank basement room, in a house where she is forced to suffer the abuses of a elderly and cantankerous landlady, is both funny and horrific. With wit, humour and compassion, Maki charts her progress through confusion, anger and despair, to acceptance and understanding.
