The Great Sea Serpent in the theatrical production "Tornkid"

API Mythology and Folklore in "Tornkid"

In Spring 2019, the Baltimore Asian Pasifika Arts Collective (BAPAC), in partnership with Cohesion Theatre Company, produced Tornkid, an original play by NY-based playwright Katelynn Kenney. 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. The AA&CC created these informational posters to give some background on the mythology and folklore that helped inspire Tornkid.
