How to Catch a Bear
By Carys Wright
Based on writer/performer Carys Wright’s own experiences, How To Catch A Bear is a redemptive, funny and mythical journey through trauma to healing.
It’s a séance – past Carys is there and she keeps on interrupting. Sometimes it’s hard to tell your own story. So she’ll draw you pictures, she’ll sing you songs, she’ll hold your hand. Join her on a quest to be reborn.

Vera Chok is a 42-year old woman of colour, immigrant and activist. She longs for pop music, puppies, and world peace. Join yellow Vera as she figures out if she’s a “a racist” or if the world is too black and white.

Peyvand/Parisa tries to navigate belonging to two opposing states.
