I am a perpetual foreigner
quarantined
too successful
too ambitious
too different

but you will celebrate
my desire to assimilate
conform to your
middle class respectability
because I can help you
steal the world

– Alice Canton

Written and Performed by Alice Canton
Directed by Holly Chappell and Thomas Eason
Alice is on a journey of self-undiscovery. A consummate glasshouse stone-thrower, she is at pains to correct her unthinking prejudices about race – and herself.

WHITE/OTHER is an exploration of identity. It blows apart the re-presentation of Asianness and attempts to fix it back together in a sticky, overflowing mess.
