Amidst contemporary cultural confusions, two champions arise. Watch as two clowns – Stan Lee, a second-generation Chinese Canadian, and Neech, his Metis-Cree cultural counterpart – take back their traditions in a battle against… a homogeneous Canadian Identity! Does it fulﬁll cultural diversity quotas? Yes. Is it racist? Maybe. Is it funny? Probably, who knows? Only one way to ﬁnd out.
Red Leather Yellow Leather is a developing clown duo show that debuted in the 2015 Edmonton International Fringe Festival. It has since been workshopped at the Mile Zero Dirt Buﬀet Cabaret #8 and the 2017 Rubaboo Aboriginal Arts Festival.
