The Pipeline Project
THE PIPELINE PROJECT
By Sebastien Archibald, Kevin Loring and Quelemia Sparrow
Directed by Chelsea Haberlin with John Cooper • Consulting Dramaturg Kathleen Flaherty
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
A provocative and comedic foray into a firestorm of debate.
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.
“There is hope in a company like ITSAZOO.”—Marsha Lederman, THE GLOBE AND MAIL

Whether it’s a fly-on-the-wall, immersive experience or a participatory, site specific event, we can create theatre for anyone, anytime, anywhere. We don’t want our audience to just watch the story. We want our audience to experience the world of the story; to live through it. More about ITSAZOO on their website.
