A derelict city canal. Fiona, Mo and Salim find peace in this urban hideout, a place that reeks of freedom, where they can be themselves- until the disturbing discovery of a dead body destroys their urban utopia, bursting the fantasy of escaping their everyday lives.

Blackberry examines the lingering stain of colonialism from the perspective of four IBPOC youth. Analogous to the social movements of 2020, Blackberry is a relevant, mysterious and hopeful piece of theatre that contributes a powerful message to the Defund the Police movement. The piece explores systemic racism within the police force and it’s very real effect on IBPOC youth.
This project is made possible due to our partnerships with the Hamilton Fringe Festival, Theatre Aquarius and Suitcase in Point as well as The Garden Project.
This project is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council.
