A concert and a conversation, Kiinalik: These Sharp Tools is the meeting place of two people, and the North and South of our country. Inuk artist Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory and queer theatre-maker Evalyn Parry met on an Arctic expedition from Iqaluit to Greenland. Now sharing a stage, these two powerful storytellers map new territory together in a work that gives voice and body to the histories, culture, and climate we’ve inherited, and asks how we reckon with these sharp tools.
Co-produced by Buddies in Bad Times Theatre and Theatre Passe Muraille.

Kiinalik: These Sharp Tools is being produced in partnership with Buddies in Bad Times as part of a new initiative between our two companies to share resources and introduce our audiences to the work being done on other stages in Toronto. This show is paired with Acha Bacha, a new play by Bilal Baig about the intersection of queerness, gender identity, and Islam, which will premiere on Theatre Passe Muraille’s stage in January 2018.
