THE CHEMICAL VALLEY PROJECT
Created by Kevin Matthew Wong + Julia Howman
Dramaturgy and advisement by Vanessa Gray + Beze Gray
Theatre makers and friends Julia Howman and Kevin Matthew Wong document Vanessa and Beze’s vital activism and journeys as land defenders and water protectors. Through an innovative blend of projection design, object puppetry, and a warm solo-performance by Kevin Matthew Wong (Honourable Mention for Theatre Centre’s Emerging Artist Award, SummerWorks 2017), The Chemical Valley Project seeks to spark conversations on Canadian environmental policy, treaty rights and Indigenous relations, as well as the current nature of Canadian identity and values.
Receiving praise for its visual magic, surprising theatricality, and vital message, The Chemical Valley Project has toured across Ontario, British Columbia, and Germany after successful workshops at Theatre Passe Muraille’s Buzz Series and the 2017 SummerWorks Festival. This month, The Chemical Valley Project makes its Toronto debut at Theatre Passe Muraille.
A Theatre Passe Muraille and Broadleaf Theatre Presentation with support from Ontario Arts Council – Conseil des arts de l’Ontario, Toronto Arts Council and Ecojustice.
