BLACKTOP SKY


  • Lower Ossington Theatre 100 Ossington Avenue Toronto, ON, M6J 2Z4 Canada (map)

Klass, a homeless, young Black man, sets up residence in the courtyard of a housing project where Ida Peters lives. Triggered by a fatal confrontation between a local street vendor and the police, Klass and Ida quickly develop a precarious bond against the backdrop of a restless neighborhood. Inspired by the Greek myth "Leda and the Swan," Blacktop Sky examines the intersection of love, violence, community, and justice in the shadow of police harassment.
