Baltimore Asian Pasifika Arts Collective


providing a platform for aapi artists to create and showcase art that reflects our lives and experiences


Drawing on the power of Southeast Asian and Pacific Indigenous creation stories, Tornkid follows the journey of a child of immigrants pulled between cultures as they unwittingly tear themselves in two and search for their other half in a mythical, magical land.

An original play by playwright, Katelynn Kenney, Tornkid was our first full-length production and produced in collaboration with Cohesion Theatre Company. It premiered on May 23 and closed on June 9, 2019. We also presented a workshop production of Tornkid in New York City as part of LadyFest, a celebration of womxnhood and the female voice, in all its glory. LadyFest was organized by The Tank, a home for emerging artists.

Your support means a lot to us. Please consider donating to our organization to help us bring productions like Tornkid to Baltimore and develop the play into an educational theatre program for youth in Baltimore and beyond.
