Taking place on site at the Britannia Heritage Shipyard in the Steveston area of south Richmond, Salmon Row tells the story of a place of plenty, the mouth of the Fraser River, and the creatures and peoples who subsisted, thrived and profited from the seemingly endless resource of salmon which they found there. Our saga follows the stories of some of these people - First Nations and Chinese and Japanese immigrants - as they are caught in the nets of big business in the new country. This compelling and vibrant piece of theatre explores issues of immigration, ethnic conflict, labour history, and memory.
The show will feature Mortal Coil's signature stilts, masks, a live 4-piece band, and allows the audience to experience the history of the community of Steveston while moving from one site to the next. Click here for more details.
