Toka

Toka by Indrit Kasapi | A Theatre Passe Muraille and lemonTree creations Digital Co-Production

Video visual descriptions CW: Fake blood.

Video begins with a slow motion of a dancer, wearing a white knitted sweater with a red collar, turning. The scene cuts to hands, being washed in a bucket. A distressed man in a black jersey jacket is trying to wash something off his hands. Video intercuts between the dancer and the man. The man holds his hands up, it is dripping in blood. As drums disappear, the dancer stops and gazes at the camera. Her hair is messy from the movement and she is breathing. Video ends with brand logo and show information, available on our website here.

Toka tells the story of siblings who wrestle with a long-standing land dispute that has resulted in generational death after death, and is threatening to come to a brutal climax. This startling work of physical theatre about modern-day blood feuds in post-Communist Albania, is delicate, evocative and heart-breaking.
