What embodied practices can lead us toward a more active role in the struggle for abolition? ABOLISH explores this question through Taiko, movement, and poetry.

RAW acknowledges that we are situated in Tkaronto, the traditional territory of many nations including the Anishnabeg, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, and now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.

‘ABOLISH’ was commissioned by Nightwood Theatre for the national Transformations project, hosted by the National Arts Centre of Canada. This project features work from some of Canada’s most innovative artists in video, audio and text. It is a response to a provocation by Canadian playwright David Yee, who asked everyone: “What would it take to transform our society for the betterment of all?”
