       Theatre Performance: “Someone Between”

       “Someone Between” – a one-woman show that traces the (real-life) writer’s and
       performer’s journey from Cambodia to Canada – played at Montreal’s recent
       Wildside Festival to a packed and enthusiastic house. The story of an immigrant
       daughter, struggling to reconcile her Canadian-ness and intercultural beliefs with
       the traditional values of her Khmer parents, moved the audience to both tears
       and laughter. For more information, please visit

       We would like to thank Concordia University for the generous programming
       grant that made this free theatre performance possible.
