Kiinalik: These Sharp Tools is the meeting place of two people, and the North and South of our
country. Inuk storyteller and dancer Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory and queer theatre-maker
Evalyn Parry met on an Arctic expedition from Iqaluit to Greenland. Now sharing a stage, these
two powerful storytellers map new territory together in a work that gives voice and body to the
histories, culture, and climate we’ve inherited, and asks how we reckon with these sharp tools.
Created by Evalyn Parry, Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, Erin Brubacher, and Elysha Poirier with Cris Derksen
A Buddies in Bad Times Theatre Production Presented with PuSh International Performing Arts Festival

Touchstone Theatre creates and presents Canadian plays — giving first and future productions to Canadian voices that are daring, exciting, and current.
We are grateful to our artists for their vision and rigour, our patrons for their dedicated enthusiasm, and all levels of funders whose support makes our work possible. We are especially appreciative of the Coast Salish peoples, in particular the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. We humbly acknowledge that we create and present our Canadian-identified work on their land.
