A Play About Pipelines – Bears Comes To The Cultch May 8 – 12, 2018

23 Apr

BearsA very timely and much anticipated production comes to The Cultch, Bears.  This is billed as ‘Comically drak. Unapologetically political. A play about pipelines.”  This multi-disciplinary dark comedy is about the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline. The Alberta Aboriginal Performing Arts and Punctuate! Theatre from Edmonton presents this production which is written and directed by Matthew MacKenzie.  Bears gives a voice to the voiceless animals and vulnerable landscapes, desecrated by industrial expansion. At the same time, the production strives to increase dialogue about the devastating effects on Canada’s First Nations peoples. This is an Indigenous-led play told through dramatic storytelling and choreography, with an eight-person chorus, enchanting projections, and an evocative electronic soundscape, BEARS is an emotional, empathetic performance experience.  Bears is only on for a short run from May 8 – 12, 2018.  Tickets can be purchased online at The Cultch.
