By Katelynn Kenney

Devised with Members of Cohesion Theatre Company and Baltimore Asian Pacifika Arts Collective

Directed by Cara Hinh

Cohesion Theatre Company is excited to be partnering with the newly created Baltimore Asian Pacifika Arts Collective on this world premiere production. Devised with members of Cohesion and BAPAC, and written by playwright Katelynn Kenney, Tornkid draws on the power of indigenous Asian and Pacific creation stories to explore identity and unearth how ancient female narratives can provide guidance towards healing our broken world.

With puppetry created by Cohesion’s own Artistic Director, Jess Rassp, and 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. Ticket will be on-sale soon. Check back for more info.

Opening night for Tornkid is Thursday, May 23 at 8pm. Following opening night the show will run Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 4 pm from May 23 through June 9, 2019. Tickets are Pay What You Can and may be purchased online at

Cohesion performs in “The Fallout Shelter” at United Evangelical Church (923 S. East Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21224) at the corner of East Avenue and Dillon Street in Canton. Patrons should enter the space through the red doors on East Avenue. For more information about the Cohesion Theatre Company 2019 Season, visit
