Chemical Valley Project
Performed by Broadleaf Theatre.
Post show Q&A.
This urgent production delves into difficult conversations on Indigenous treaty rights, the nature of contemporary Canadian identity and values, and Canada’s notorious “Chemical Valley”.
Located in Sarnia, the Aamjiwnaang First Nations reserve is smothered by one of Canada’s largest petrochemical corridors: the Chemical Valley. Vanessa Gray and Lindsay Beze Gray have dedicated their lives to fighting the pollution that threatens their community’s health and future. Theatre makers Julia Howman and Kevin Matthew Wong document their vital activism as land defenders and water protectors. Through an innovative blend of design, object puppetry, and performance, The Chemical Valley Project sparks conversations on Canadian environmental policy, treaty rights and Indigenous relations, and of Canadian identity and values. NOW Magazine Critics’ Pick in 2017.
