Tues­day, March 28, 7 – 9:30 pm, Car­leton Domin­ion-Chalmers Cen­tre, 355 Coop­er St (paid park­ing off Lis­gar St entrance)

What role can lis­ten­ing play in address­ing the cli­mate emer­gency? Vio­list, com­pos­er, eth­no­mu­si­col­o­gist, and cli­mate activist Tanya Kalmanovitch presents a per­for­mance of her doc­u­men­tary the­atre piece The Tar Sands Songbook,addressing the com­plex­i­ties of life, cul­ture, and oil-eco­nom­ics in her home­town of Fort McMur­ray. Through text, ethno­graph­ic video, and Tanya’s orig­i­nal music, the work asks us to con­sid­er our per­son­al rela­tion­ships with oil. The per­for­mance will be fol­lowed by an audi­ence talk­back discussion.
