In the Spring Theatre Yes will present a performance installation piece called VISCOSITY which will utilize the methodology of verbatim theatre to construct an event that will animate the complex experiences and stories of front line resource industry workers. VISCOSITY was inspired by a piece created and produced by Heather while in Fredericton during the summer of 2014 as artist in residence at the University of New Brunswick at the Notable Acts Festival. This performance installation takes audiences on a ride through Alberta’s turbulent oil industry. Featuring stories collected via interviews with the men and women on the front lines of big oil – VISCOSITY invites audiences into one-on-one transactions with actors placing them in the midst of the compelling real life drama of Canada’s most talked about industry.
Heather continues with the The Citadel Young Playwrights Company and in a new position as resident Dramaturg (North) at Alberta Playwrights Network.
There a few exciting announcements coming in the spring. Stay so stay stunned.
