Gateway Theatre Pacific Festival, TAIWANFest, Sunwave VI

From a showcase of contemporary Chinese theatre to a celebration of Taiwan and a final gasp at summer, we’re all about festivals and music this week.

With the Lower Mainland boasting hundreds of thousands of Cantonese speakers eager to see their language and culture front and centre. For those who do not speak Cantonese, the festival becomes a window to another world.
