The Cultch presents Extraction


Winner of the Rio Tinto Alcan Performing Arts Award, Theatre 2013
In this powerful theatre documentary, Extraction delves deep into the heart of intertwined cultural phenomena: China's rise as an economic power and oil extraction in Alberta. Mining the biographies of non-actor performers, this bilingual (English and Mandarin) play digs beneath the surface of highly charged political debates to illuminate lives transformed by legendary traffic jams, boomtown fever, translation trouble, and diplomatic intrigue in Beijing and Ft. McMurray's tar sands.
