SomeoneBetween-860x573Your name: Chantria Tram

Your production: Someone Between

Your role: Writer/Performer/Producer

Tell me about your show.

Fresh off its run at the Hamilton Fringe Festival, Apsara Theatre Company in association with Dreamwalker Dance Company is proud to present Someone Between at the Summerworks Performance Festival. Written and performed by Chantria Tram, this solo show is a complex and humorous personal investigation into cultural identity and belonging, exploring the culture she inherited and the culture she lives in.

Triggered by a terrible event, Chantria hangs in the balance between traditional and modern values, family and individuality, past and future as she seeks her Khmer (Cambodian) roots and a deeper understanding of her family’s journey to Canada. Infused with Western pop culture, Khmer (Cambodian) music and movement-driven storytelling, the play looks at what it means to be ‘someone between’.

Now again in the style of a tweet by Donald Trump.

The failing Summerworks is showcasing a disaster of a one woman show SOMEONE BETWEEN. There’s not ANY nudity. Total disaster!

What other shows or artists are you looking forward to seeing?

So many!! THE PRINCIPLE OF PLEASURE, MOTHER SEA / MANMAN LA MER, ROOTLESS, PERFECTION and THE CHEMICAL VALLEY PROJECT.
