General Admission

Black gold, true tales, real lives.

A performance installation takes audiences on a ride through Alberta’s turbulent oil industry. Featuring stories collected via interviews with the men and women on the front lines of big oil – VISCOSITY invites audiences into one-on-one transactions with actors placing them in the midst of the compelling real-life drama of Canada’s most talked about industry. You’ve never seen anything quite like VISCOSITY and you won’t forget it.

Part exhibition, part journalism, and part performance, VISCOSITY brings to life the stories of Alberta oil workers across a variety of ages, genders, sexualities, cultures, and perspectives. Created from transcriptions of interviews with real Albertans in 2018, VISCOSITY challenges what we think we know about the people who work in big oil. This performance installation creates intimate encounters with big oil, bringing Albetian’s together in conversation about life in and out of the patch.

Featuring: Jimmy Buena, Chis Bullough, Leo Composa, Murray Farnell, Byron Martin, Sandy Paddick, and Melissa Thingelstad.

Audience members may come anytime during performance times and stay as long as they wish.
