蝦仔 Little Shrimp

蝦仔 Little Shrimp is a bilingual audio play about intergenerational relationships within Chinese culture and families. Open your imaginations and take part in Qingming and other Chinese traditions!

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.

Created and performed by Derek Chan, Howard Dai, Nancy Tam, Natalie T.Y. Gan & Robyn Jacob. 

AudioPLAY is Carousel Theatre for Young People’s 2020/2021 season of screen-free audio theatre designed to engage and excite. Listen in!
