Jivesh Parasram with arms folded, holding a bottle of milk. There is a streak of white down Jivesh's forehead and moustache.

Take d Milk, Nah?

Montréal, arts interculturels (MAI)

Relaxed performance.

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

Jiv 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 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. Because we have to laugh in the face of Empire. To be able to continue to resist.

Oh, and there’s a cow.

Co-presented by Pandemic Theatre and Theatre Passe Muraille. 1 hour 30 minutes.
