Recognizing the influences and issues involved in this production, explorASIAN was quick to partner with Tempus Theatre to make sure that 36 VIEWS is a featured event in ASIAN HERITAGE MONTH
throughout the month of May.

WHY PARTNER with TEMPUS THEATRE and 36 VIEWS?
36 VIEWS is written in such a way that the audience experiences a melding of Eastern and Western forms of theatre. Naomi Iizuka magically creates a contemporary play set in a modern, metropolitan city incorporating strong elements of traditional Japanese Kabuki, Noh theatre, and references to touchstones of Japanese culture such as Sei Shonagon’s Pillow Book, Murasaki Shikibu’s The Tale of Genji and traditional music.

We chose to produce 36 VIEWS for a number of important reasons. First, it tells a story that is current, mysterious and extremely well crafted. Second, it demands a creative use of cutting-edge theatrical technology alongside traditional theatrical conventions borrowed from European and Asian traditions. Third and most importantly, we believe this story reflects the community in which we all live and work. By positioning your company’s name in our publicity materials, you will be clearly seen as taking a leading role in Vancouver’s cultural future.

36 VIEWS has so many layers and angles that the number 36 seems to be an underestimation of its incredible complexity. The value of art in society. The value of public opinion. The assumptions we make about different cultures. The question of cultural appropriation. The ethics of the art market. These are just a few of the issues that 36 VIEWS opens up for debate. For a city like Vancouver, where the mix of cultural backgrounds is an essential part of its character, 36 VIEWS becomes a prism that allows us to take apart and examine that cultural richness. Ms. Iizuka has borrowed from traditional Japanese theatre, literature and visual art, and by using the creative tools of the past, a new form is created, a new life is born in which the present is laid open for discussion, and the future must be addressed.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT WILL MAKE A VITAL CONTRIBUTION toward the artistic and cultural fabric of Vancouver. In mounting the western Canadian premiere of 36 VIEWS, Tempus Theatre’s goal is to open up the world of art and theatre to as many people as possible.

We are in the process of inviting Vancouver high schools to the show, as we believe the themes of the play are important for young people living in such a culturally diverse city as ours. This can only happen with your commitment to get involved.
