WORD Christchurch Festival 2016 Being Chinese/White/Other

Two writers, a generation apart, consider their identity as New Zealanders of Chinese descent. Helene Wong received a standing ovation for her lecture at the 2016 Auckland Writers Festival based on her book Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story, in which she attempts to ‘find [her] place in the world’. Alice Canton’s play White/Other ‘blows apart the re- presentations of Asianness and attempts to fix it back together in a sticky overflowing mess’. Don’t miss this fascinating conversation about common ground and different life experiences.
