Jiv is “Canadian.” And “Indian.” And “West Indian.” “Trinidadian”, too. Or maybe he’s just colonized. In Take d Milk, Nah?, Jiv blends personal storytelling and ritual to walk an audience through the Hin-dos and Hin-don’ts at the intersections of these cultures. The show is a refreshingly candid and delightfully funny look at race, religion, and nationalism(s): what divides us—and what we’re willing to accept in the desire to belong. Oh, and there’s a cow.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you’ve come from, Take d Milk, Nah? is a must-see experience.”
