"Every [one] on earth born after June 23, 1988 belongs to what I call Generation Hot. This generation includes some two billion young people, all of whom have grown up under global warming and are fated to spend the rest of their lives confronting its mounting impacts." Mark Hertsgaard

Year of the Typewriter

Year of the Typewriter responds to a challenge by ecology writer Paul Kingsnorth to cast landscape as the lead character in stories. The response of Playwright Kendra Fanconi to this challenge was to rig up an old typewriter as a backpack and go out into wild places with the idea of translating what landscape has to say. A first workshop at the Banff Centre for the Arts in October 2016 explored this concept and opened up other avenues of exploration: interspecies arts collaborations with native species and ideas for translating the voice of place.

Creeker

Creeker: a watershed sound walk for the city

AVAILABLE NOW!

Creeker is an intimate listening experience for one that challenges how we are in the city.  Walk city blocks with sound artist Nancy Tam as she guides you into unexpected places. Creeker displaces the rhythms and sounds of Roberts Creek, from the ocean to the headwaters, onto the urban landscape. A lucid dream of the forest and stream, mapping the primeval flow onto the urban now.

From Sticks & Stones, Created by The Only Animal and the Adeline Collective, ‘Deer’ designed by Kat Binns, performed by Robert Leveroos. Photo Credit: Lukas Engelhardt.
