The HAFU ハーフ Project

The HAFU ハーフ Project is an emotional journey of understanding identity, told through music, dialogue, and media. Adapted from the existing digital series of the same name, this live presentation will be the first public performance in the next stages of the project.

Combining traditional and adapted songs, while drawing on cultural touchpoints from Japanese, Swedish, and Canadian cultures, The HAFU ハーフ Project tells a semi-autobiographical story of the struggle with identity and seeking new meaning in community. 

As a person growing up between cultures, what does it mean when you fear engaging with your identity for fear that you won’t be taken seriously?

This multimedia theatre performance takes the audience along a musical exploration in peeling back the layers of how identity manifests as a product of social circumstance.
