Forced to live under the cover and control of The Dome since the climate catastrophe, queer youth of Tkaronto emerge for the first Pride event in years, only to discover it is not the celebration they had hoped it would be. A small band of them break out of the dystopia and journey into space to explore the meaning of community, connection, and home.

Created by the young artists of The AMY Project 2019 theatre program, The Breath Between is a collection of monologue, poetry, movement and music that explores themes of queer resilience, and dreams of what new worlds we will make together in apocalyptic times.

“The stories of these young artists will pierce the heart and compel you to listen and hear them.” – Lynn Slotkin (on The AMY Project’s Lion Womxn)

Created and Performed by Jericho Allick, nevada jane arlow, Taranjot Bamrah, A.C., Daniella Leacock, Megan Legesse, Claudia Liz, Alice Cheng Meiqing, Whitney-Nicole Peterkin, Lyla Sherbin, Fio Yang; Directed by kumari giles and Julia Hune-Brown; Assistant Directed by Jamie Milay and Bessie Cheng; Stage Managed by Jules Vodarek Hunter; Scenic Design by Karis Jones-Pard; Lighting Design by Senjuti Sarker; Production Managed by Sasha Tate-Howarth; Program Curation and Dramaturgy by Nikki Shaffeeullah; Produced by Rachel Penny
