a lemonTree creations and Theatre Passe Muraille coproduction

Toka tells the story of siblings who wrestle with a long-standing land dispute that has resulted in generational death after death, and is threatening to come to a brutal climax. This startling work of physical theatre about modern-day blood feuds in post-Communist Albania is delicate, evocative and heart-breaking.

TOKA (previously The Blood Cycle) was developed by lemonTree creations while a company in residence at Theatre Passe Muraille. Earlier developments of TOKA were also supported by Cahoots Theatre, Factory Theatre, Theatre Centre as well as Canadian Stage's RBC Emerging Artist Program.


We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
