Part of Heritage Fair 2023
An imaginative contemporary fable, exploring the Canadian immigration experience and what Canada’s cultural mosaic can mean.
A fig tree and a spider meet in a garage, strike up a conversation and begin a friendship. Through their friendship the spider learns of the fig tree’s long and eventful journey to Canada, which through Brazilian/Canadian playwright Patricia Nacamoto’s imagination becomes a brilliant and playful metaphor of the immigration experience.
