An uncomfortable, playful, and enlightening provocation on racism and privilege in Aotearoa.

This is a doom scroll disguised as a play: a world premiere from an arresting new voice. A meta-analysis of Asian identity, carved into razor-sharp scenes that cut to the cultural quick. Scenes from a Yellow Peril is less a play, more a series of insights that, when taken together, expose the pain of the way in which some people are othered but whose experience will not be denied.

From award-winning Chinese-New Zealand writer, actor, poet and general polymath Nathan Joe, the work dissolves the traditional play format into a rapid-fire collection of snapshots and observations, flickering past in a rush of live music and hard-to-hear truths.

A dizzying mix of humour and rage, commentary and confessional, this is a theatre experience that packs a punch.

NZSL-interpreted performance: Sat 25 Jun, 8:00pm
Audio-described performance: Sun 3 Jul, 4:00pm

A co-production between Auckland Theatre Company and SquareSums&Co, in association with Oriental Maidens.

Artwork created by Kerry Ann Lee.
