protest. performance. reconciliation.
After a national and international tour, The Chemical Valley Project returns home for its Toronto debut.
Through an captivating blend of docu-theatre, projection design, and solo-performance, Broadleaf Theatre Artistic Director Kevin Matthew Wong performs this documentary theatre work on environmental racism and reconciliation amidst the backdrop of Canada’s petrochemical industry and the vital activism of Aamjiwnaang Water Protectors and siblings Vanessa Gray and Lindsay Beze Gray.
Co-created by Julia Howman and Kevin Matthew Wong, with dramaturgy and advisement from Vanessa Gray and Lindsay Beze Gray, The Chemical Valley Project sparks conversations on Canadian environmental policy, treaty rights, and Indigenous relations, and the current nature of Canadian identity/values.
