280 E Cordova St, Vancouver, BC V6A 1L3, Canada
Co-Produced by ITSAZOO Productions and Savage Society in association with Neworld Theatre.
Originally premiered at Gateway Theatre. Developed with assistance from PTC.
Inspired by ‘Extract: The Pipeline Wars’, published by the Vancouver Observer.

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.

The second act of the piece is a Talk Forward. Each night we will invite a different speaker to respond to the piece and then participate in a facilitated conversation with the audience and performers.

Check out Director Chelsea Haberlin’s reflections on the Talk Forwards and the power of audience engagement in her widely circulated article for SpiderWebShow.

“…offers an encyclopedic array of arguments, cleverly and vividly theatricalized.” – Jerry Wasserman, The Vancouver Sun

“…A sincere invitation to a dialogue..Haberlin’s direction is a textural feast.” – Colin Thomas, colin

“Intelligently directed and beautifully staged…there is passion and commitment in this show.” Jo Ledingham, On The Scene

“Everyone – get out to Richmond Gateway to see The Pipeline Project. I learned, I was thoughtfully engaged, I laughed, I reimagined my own thinking and assumptions and I shared space with community members around such an incredibly important topic – our land, our home and each of our responsibilities to take care of it. If you’re a Settler and you have questions and curiosities about your relationship with the Indigenous Stewards of the land – go see this show, you get a fantastic opportunity to then ask your questions to the practitioners!” – Kim Harvey on Facebook
