The Chemical Valley Project


Pia Bouman-Scotiabank Theatre

Premiering at the 2017 Summerworks Festival, The Chemical Valley Project is an innovative documentary-theatre solo-performance that investigates Canada’s energy infrastructure and the role of all Canadians in reconciliation. The show focuses on the efforts of the Aamjiwnaang land defenders Vanessa Gray and Lindsay Gray to protect their community’s land, air, and water against the negative impacts of Canada’s petrochemical industry. Created by Broadleaf Theatre’s Julia Howman and Kevin Matthew Wong – and performed by Kevin Matthew Wong – the show incorporates a unique blend of documentary footage, projection design and miniature object puppetry. As Canada gears up to celebrate its 150th birthday, The Chemical Valley Project questions the foundations of 21st century Canada in light of ongoing environmental racism and the experiences of indigenous people. The Chemical Valley Project runs from August 3 – 13, 2017 at the Pia Bouman–Scotiabank Theatre as part of the 2017 Summerworks Festival. Tickets $15 - $35, available at the Summerworks box office and online.
The play runs 35 minutes, as part of a 75 minute double bill with Perfection by Mark Correia.
