In the face of the third wave of Covid-19 and the second cancellation of production, 我的名是张欣恩 (Gimme chance leh) Redux: A Team Together is a creative culmination of the artists, designers and production members collaborating digitally over the span of two weeks. While we cannot share the magic of this story live with you in person, we instead pull back the curtains and allow a peek behind the scenes to the different iterations of the original production that were borne from navigating live theatre in a pandemic. As a collective, we ruminate on the themes of the play, reminisce on the process, exchange stories about food, language, and reflect on how we and our families came to find a home in Alberta. Digitally, we did what we deeply miss doing in-person – gathering, rehearsing, trying new ideas (and food!), contemplating designs, mourning, celebrating, what was and what is.
