The Tar Sands Dragon Opera

Birdbone Theatre is bringing its Line 9 Puppet Theatre Tour to First. The Green Team invites adults (and kids too!) to attend the charming and powerful "Tar Sands Dragon Opera" shadow and marionette puppet show. The shows creators, Alison and Aleksandra are touring communities along Line 9 (Sarnia, ON to Sherbrooke, PQ) to raise awareness about an Enbridge pipeline which runs through Toronto, just north of Finch Avenue. A fairytale of sorts, the show features the cardboard clownery of a bewildered puppet population and the operatics of the inky-black shadows that lurk wherever There Be Dragons. Accordion playing, and song and dance will lighten the necessarily inky mood. Admission is by donation. Bring a bag lunch if you wish. In Shaw Hall.
