蝦仔 Little Shrimp- Carousel Theatre for Young People

蝦仔 Little Shrimp is a bilingual audio play about intergenerational relationships within Chinese culture. Where do stories live? How are stories passed on from one generation to the next? Do our ancestors live within us? The show’s Cantonese title, 蝦仔 (“little shrimp” in English), is an endearing, diminutive, and gender-neutral term for a small child. Commonly used about 2 generations ago roughly around the turn of the last century, the term connotes a kinship between the child and the adult.
