Kimiko is a poetic circus show that tells the tale of self discovery and reconciling generational trauma. Using a modern perspective on traditional Japanese arts, Kimiko explores the history of Japanese-Canadians and the relatable journey of discovering one’s cultural roots. Story telling, balancing objects, dancing, and sword swallowing are all woven together into a rich live performance that is more than entertaining, it is healing. Suitable for all ages, Kimiko is a visual feast full of beauty and surprises.
