Place presented by Brian Webb Dance Company
PLACE is about growing up on the flat prairie near the Drumheller Badlands. It reveals the pleasures of that stark landscape and its contrast with the Red Deer River Canyon. It tells of a young boy's bicycle rides on country roads that seemed to lead toward an infinitely distant landscape, and the mysteries of searching for petrified dinosaur bones and of buffalo jumps. It asks why these memories stay inside the body and be defined as home even after leaving it behind decades ago.
Creative team for this project: Brian Webb, legendary Edmonton filmmaker, Kyle Armstrong, and composer, Mark Templeton.
PLACE was presented on August 9 & 10 at The Theatre Lab (Allard Hall, MacEwan University).
This project was supported by an AFA 25th Anniversary Commemorative Art Project grant. Learn more about the AFA's commemorative activities.
