Residents from Toronto’s most notorious intersection find themselves backed into a dystopian corner by ‘the man’. Armed with art, a conscience and the echoes of Arab Spring, they must decide whether to run, hide,
stand their ground or come out fighting. KNOWN TO POLICE is a celebration of the vibrancy, resilience and
swag of a community that finds itself on the wrong side of society’s “you are either with us or against us”
Directed by Mark Cassidy, KNOWN TO POLICE features members of Nomanzland, including Maryama Ahmed, Yasmin Ali, Shinnika Carpenter, Ramone Davis, Kobe J, Soen Mi Jang, Abdinasir Mohame d, Anike Nicholson-Webster, Steven Salguero, Khadiija Sayaadi, Sashoya Simpson, Maazia Taitt, Joel Taylor and Andrae Walsh with Set & Costume Design by Jung Hye Kim and Stage
Management by Kate Sandeson.

streams to meet, cross and debate. With the guidance of YPT’s Community Participation Coordinator, Nomanzland has consistently gone from
strength to strength throughout this period, providing a
youth-driven artistic platform for more than 150 yo
