Tornkid (New York Workshop Production)


Katelynn Kenney and the Baltimore Asian Pasifika Arts Collective Presents
A New York Workshop Production

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’s other half runs away with their voice, into a mythical land both achingly familiar and unfamiliar. This play by Katelynn Kenney draws on the power of Southeast Asian and Pacific Indigenous mythology to take the audience on an elemental journey to literally find oneself. Under the direction of Cara Hinh and Donna Ibale, with puppetry created by Jess Rassp, and masks created by Tara Cariaso, Tornkid promises to be a feast for the senses and an exploration into a world rarely seen on the American stage.
