A unique theatrical production about Brantford's Chinese community.
Maichina Veri, October 10, 2022 // Brantford, Ontario
Produced by Brant Theatre Workshops and directed by Peter Muir, “Tomb Sweeping” is a play that follows a Chinese family during The Qingming Festival – a festival associated with a Chinese public holiday in which families sweep the tombs of their ancestors to show respect and commemorate the past. The theatrical performance focuses on grandchildren of Chinese immigrants learning about the experiences and resilience of their grandparents.
This play, which takes place on Saturday, October 22 at 7:00 p.m., is part of a full-day event brought to you by Brant Theatre Workshops, The Canadian Industrial Heritage Centre, Wilfrid Laurier University Brantford Campus and The Brant Historical Society for the Immigrant Memories of Brantford series. The event includes an exhibit at the Brant County Museum, an historical walk, video presentations, food tasting and a lecture.
