Pizza or spam. Important, not important. American, Immigrant.

Tornkid just wants to belong: at school, at home, in their own skin. So what does Tornkid do? Tear themselves in two. Tricky thing is, Tornkid loses their voice and their other half runs away into a mythical land. Drawing on the power of Southeast Asian & Pacific Indigenous mythology, come take part in Tornkid’s elemental journey to literally find themself.

Tornkid is a collaboration between BAPAC and Cohesion Theatre Company. It is now showing and runs until June 9.
