That’s a wrap!
The response to VISCOSITY was outstanding. Jenna Marynowski (After the House Lights) praised Theatre Yes for fulfilling a promise to deliver a piece “unlike anything we’ve seen on Edmonton’s stages before.” Liz Nicholls (12th Night) called it work that “gives your easy assumptions about big oil a jostle with personal perspectives from people who actually work in that world. ” Audience went public with their praise. Edmonton film director Dylan Howard said of VISCOSITY: “I invoke no hyperbole at all when I say it was one of the most engaging and enjoyable artistic experiences of my life […] I don’t want to give away too much, I just want to encourage you to GO AND SEE THIS ART.”
Thank you to everyone who attended and engaged with VISCOSITY, for being part of this conversation. We’d also like to extend our gratitude to the organizations who supported the creation of this project, including the Edmonton Arts Council, City of Edmonton, Edmonton Community Foundation, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Canada Council for the Arts, Ground Zero Productions and Alberta Labour History Institute.
