The Tashme Project is a verbatim theatre piece that traces the history and common experience of the Nisei (or 2nd Generation Japanese Canadians) through childhood, WW2 internment and post-war resettlement. Now in their 70’s and 80’s, the Nisei were children at the time of internment and their stories of adventure and play are presented in sharp relief to the more common internment narratives of hardship and injustice.
