The Only Animal and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity present World Premiere of SLIME – which tunes into the impact of humans on the ‘great animal orchestra’ – the biophony – in which we are immersed, and from which we have become dangerously disconnected by our infatuation with the sound of our own voices.
Commissioned by the Banff Centre, and penned by Bryony Lavery, the acclaimed British playwright of Tony-nominated, Frozen, SLIME is set just slightly in the future, at a climate-change conference where animals are at the table. The cast includes 100 animals, seven young animal translators, scientists and suits, and you, the audience.
Theatrical World Premiere of SLIME
When: June 15 to June 24, 2018
Tuesday to Sunday evenings at 8:00pm; Sunday matinées June 17 & 24 at 2:00pm
Where: Russian Hall (600 Campbell Ave, Vancouver)
Tickets: Available online now for $22/$25 plus service charges.
Seated amongst the animal delegates, you might hear an otter swimming down an aisle, a dolphin whistling at your elbow or a sea bird speaking over your shoulder: animals too have something to say.
We come together to face an absolute threat to life on earth — an insatiable creature taking over seas called SLIME. Like other forces in our 21st century lives, facebookslime or googleslime, SLIME moves with viral force, gobbling up all available resources. Humans enabled it, but nothing can stop it. This conference is the last hope for salvation for all life forms. Except SLIME.
Performed by: Lisa Baran, Pedro Chamale, Teo Saefkow, Anais West, Eddy Van Wyk, Sophia Wolfe, and Mason Temple
