Description

“There’s no such thing as neutral in the bear world.”

As the prime suspect in a workplace accident, Floyd has to get out of town fast. Pursued by the RCMP, he heads through the Rockies for Burnaby, BC, along the route of the Trans Mountain Pipeline. By the time he reaches the Pacific, Floyd has experienced changes: his gait widening, muscles bulging, sense of smell heightening…

A multidisciplinary dark comedy about the Trans Mountain Pipeline, Bears asks what the hell it is we think we’re doing here.

— Amanda Ghazale Aziz, NOW Magazine

Bears is inventive and daring theatre.”

— Liz Nicholls, Edmonton Journal
