Soul Samurai at the Vancouver Fringe Festival
Katanas. Revenge. True Love. What are you waiting for? Queer romance, slick hip hop, and the finest stage combat this side of Brooklyn crash the Fringe with SOUL SAMURAI by Qui Nguyen
This production is part of the fringe festival’s Dramatic Works Series which showcases Asian playrights.
Affair of Honor presents the tale of Dewdrop, a young samurai in post-apocalyptic Manhattan. She’s on a mission to avenge the death of her girlfriend Sally at the hands of the Long Tooth gang… but she’ll have to battle burnouts, shoguns, flashbacks, and her wise-ass B-boy sidekick just to make it across the Brooklyn Bridge.
In this darkly awesome future, Shoguns reign, vampires infest Brooklyn, and the world has gone grindhouse. After losing her lover to some undead hoodlums, Dewdrop gets herself a training montage and a sidekick and sets off for revenge. Soul Samurai—a graphic novel explodes onstage: multimedia action topped with zine-like homemade sweetness.
The performance on September 12 is half-price!
