THE PIPELINE PROJECT
A provocative and comedic foray into a firestorm of debate.
The Gateway Theatre, Richmond, BC
March 9–18, 2017 • Studio B
Co-Produced by ITSAZOO Productions and Savage Society/In association with Gateway Theatre and Neworld Theatre/Developed with assistance from PTC.
Inspired by ‘Extract’, a book published by Vancouver Observer on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline conflicts in BC.
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.
For Tickets and more information please visit the Gateway Theatre.
The second act of the piece is a Talk Forward. Each night we will invite a different speaker to respond to the piece and then participate in a facilitated conversation with the audience and performers. For more info on our Talk Forward speakers click here.
