Setsun, Kamar, Shams, Mands, and Maria look like the quintessential faces of a diversity and inclusion poster. It’s Canada Day and they’re going to the club. But things aren’t exactly as they seem…and who is this Kit guy? All That Binds Us is a live/live-streamed devised theatrical piece that weaves through time and space exploring the stories that bring individuals together into a complex and ever-shifting globalized community. At its heart, All That Binds Us is a contemplation of place, belonging, and an attempt to manifest cohesion in an increasingly fragmented world.
