Immersive theatre company ITSAZOO and aboriginal performance company Savage Society bring to life a vibrant and personal account of the ongoing political battles over pipelines. Peak oil, First Nations land claims, and climate change are all explored with humour and empathy in this timely, meta-theatrical event.
The second act of the piece is a Talk Forward. Each night we invite a different speaker to respond to the piece and then participate in a facilitated conversation with the audience and performers.
