It’s official! We are so excited to announce that Baltimore Asian Pasifika Arts Collective will be partnering with Cohesion Theatre for in the Spring of 2019! This production will be an original work - devised, created and written by artists from both BAPAC and Cohesion. It will premiere in Baltimore and run from May 16-June 2, 2019.
This original work is a commissioned project and will be written by New York-based Filipino-American playwright Katelynn Kenney, best known for her most recent play Void, which premiered in New York City earlier this year. The story will draw on the power of indigenous Asian and Pacific creation stories to explore identity and unearth how ancient female and non-binary narratives can provide guidance towards healing our broken world. Our Director of Education and Community Outreach, Cara Hinh - fresh from her stint as Assistant Director for Baltimore Center Stage’s King of the Yees - directs this piece. We are also excited to announce that Cohesion Theatre’s Artist Director Jessica Rassp will be creating original puppets for this production. Ms. Rassp is a master puppet maker and is best known for her work with Submersive Productions and their immersive theatre piece H.T. Darling’s Incredible Museaum.
Stay tuned! More announcements regarding our 2019 season to come!
