Message from Alison Gayle about the tour:
"WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We will be touring our Tar Sands Dragon Opera (and clown show) along Line 9 the month of February, and we are looking for folks who will host our show in their communities (schools, community halls, living rooms etc.) We would love to connect with as many of the folks involved in Line 9 organizing as possible.
The Tar Sands Dragon Opera is a puppet tragi-comedy featuring the clown hysterics of a bewildered cardboard population struggling to come to terms with the murky convoluted thinkings on Tar Sands expansion and consequent Line 9 reversal. The show will also feature music and dancing by humans, to lighten the occasionally inky mood. The Tar Sands Dragon Opera is a media project. We will learn about the case against the reversal of Line 9 from the communities we perform for, and will allow this to inform our show as we go. We will also make short radio pieces along the way when appropriate.
Alison Gayle, Birdbone Theatre"
Voluntary donations to support the tour will be accepted at the venue or online on the Theatre website.
