It’s funny, intimate, warm, political, a bit livid, powerful, powerless and patient.

Following rules established at the beginning of the show, Jo Fong and Sonia Hughes host a series of six-minute conversations, from unfathomable questions about the state of the world to small questions about the state of your garden. It sounds simple, but in Jo and Sonia’s own words: complexity takes time.

Neither Here Nor There encourages you on an intimate journey through many voices, many perspectives and many lives, posing the question: “how can we live together?”

“A leap of faith.”
– CCQ Magazine

Audience reponses

“A stream of directed consciousness between two vested people.”
“Inspiring, heartfelt and engaging.”
