1 Hour Photo
April 23, April 24
Written and performed by Tetsuro Shigematsu, 1 Hour Photo is the story of Mas Yamamoto, a man whose life was swept up by the major currents of the 20th century. From growing up in a fishing village on the banks of the Fraser River, to being confined at a Japanese Canadian internment camp during World War II, to helping build the Distant Early Warning Line in the Canadian Arctic during the height of the Cold War, 1 Hour Photo is a moving portrait saturated with the most vivid colours of our times.

Had they previously met somewhere else under different circumstances? Why is their love so troubling for their children? Indeed, the light at dusk is sometimes warmer and more enveloping than that of the midday sun. Half Life explores the complicated ways in which those who provide care are also positioned with power – the power to withhold and endow agency, the power to enact and prevent harm, the power to give and affirm love. Set in an elder care home at the turn of the 21st century, this audio production reimagines Half Life as a queer story of love and memory.
