Ginnal is one of the lucky ones who made it here to Foreign. His lover Asafa is still stuck in Yard. Ginnal is doing all that he can to get Asafa to Foreign – tricking, picking and even dicking. This is speaking of sneaking, a multidisciplinary mash-up of dance, poetry and pantomime, where the archetypal Jamaican ginnal and the mythical African Anansi meet.
speaking of sneaking is presented as part of the RISER Project, a collaborative producing model by Why Not Theatre, with the generous support of the Government of Canada.
