“What is Chinese? What is being Chinese? What is not Chinese?”

These are the questions Alice Canton raises in her award-winning live documentary theatre, OTHER [chinese].

In this limited season, Chinese locals take the stage each night to share personal stories, connecting and exploring what it means to be Chinese in Waitaha (Canterbury), here and now. Candid, charming, and utterly necessary, OTHER [chinese] creates space for multiple voices to arise – because being Chinese is not one singular thing.

“Real love, real sadness, real regrets, real human experiences. OTHER [chinese] is a refreshing piece of theatre that deserves recognition.”
