«This is the story of how I once birthed a cow… kinda.»

Jivesh is “Canadian.” And “Indian.” And “Hindu.” And “West Indian.” “Trinidadian” too. Or maybe he’s just colonized. In Take d Milk, Nah? Parasram blends personal storytelling and ritual to walk an audience through the Hin-do’s and Hin-don’ts at the intersections of these cultures. The show is a refreshingly candid and delightfully funny look at race, religion and nationalism(s): What divides us – and what we’re willing to accept in the desire to belong.

Oh, and there’s a cow.

— TAKE D MILK, NAH?

Written & performed by Jivesh Parasram | Directed by Tom Arthur Davis | Dramaturgy by Graham Isador | Co-produced by b current and Pandemic Theatre, with the support of Theatre Passe Muraille


About bcurrent performing arts

For over 26 years, b current has produced outside of the box performance pieces, ideas, workshops, and mainstage productions. We splashed onto the scene in 1991, when ahdri zhina mandiela founded the company, and we brought to Toronto the first ever production of a Dub Theatre script, mandiela’s dark diaspora… in dub. The kinetic artistic energy from this fuelled our pioneer work feeding and shaping the future of Canadian performance art through culturally-rooted creation. Since inception, b current has developed scores of internationally celebrated artists and their works, with a focus always on engaging the community and creating space for diverse voices to be heard.

About Pandemic Theatre
Founded in 2009, Pandemic Theatre is a Toronto-based theatre company mandated to create, develop, and produce work from critical and underrepresented perspectives that engage social and political themes. We strive to create spaces where political discourse is not only possible, but also encouraged. Our work is to challenge audiences, artists, and communities to engage and question the role of aesthetics in ideology. To do so ethically, critically, and in the spirit of solidarity. We strive to build and foster relationships with like-minded organizations working in the field of social-justice and political engagement. Another world is possible.
