We are so excited to be partnering with Cohesion Theatre Company for our next production, Tornkid. Devised by artists from both BAPAC and Cohesion Theatre Company with an original script written by New York-based Filipino American playwright, Katelynn Kenney—best known for her most recent play Wendell and Pan, which premiered at The Tank in New York City earlier this year—Tornkid draws on the power of Asian and Pacific mythology and folklore to explore identity and unearth how ancient female narratives can provide guidance towards healing our broken world.
Fresh from her stint as Assistant Director for Baltimore Center Stage’s King of the Yees, Cara Hinh, our Director of Education and Community Outreach, will be directing this piece. Cohesion Theatre’ Company’s Artistic Director Jessica Rassp, best known for her work with Submersive Productions and immersive theatre piece H.T. Darling’s Incredible Museaum, will be creating original puppets for this production. Along with masks created by Waxing Moon Masks Director, Tara Cariaso, Tornkid promises to be a feast for the senses, and an exploration into a world rarely seen on the American stage.
Tickets will be on sale soon on Cohesion Theatre Company’s website. Check back for more info and follow our social media pages for the latest news.
