FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre presents
Kimiko's Pearl
Commissioned and produced by Bravo Niagara!

SAT 22 JUNE AT 7:30PM + SUN 23 JUNE AT 2:30PM


World premiere! Kimiko’s Pearl is a new ballet that unfurls the bittersweet story of one family spanning four generations. It is told through the eyes of Kimiko, a 15-year-old Toronto girl who discovers an old family trunk containing her great-grandfather’s diary and other precious keepsakes. Kimiko’s story reflects the tragedies and triumphs of Japanese Canadian families before, during, and after World War II. 

Inspired by the family history of Bravo Niagara!’s co-founders Christine Mori and Alexis Spieldenner, Kimiko’s Pearl is based on a story by Emmy Award winner Howard Reich. The production features original music by Kevin Lau, choreography by Yosuke Mino with dancers from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and three generations of Japanese Canadian visual artists and musicians.
