Warriors returning from battle

What ceremony will allow us to gather again?
A specially commissioned short play, created for and filmed in our empty theatre, Katharsis is a marking of this period when our theatre is in waiting.
The Chemical Valley Project

Located in Sarnia, Ontario, the Aamjiwnaang First Nations reserve and its 900 residents are smothered by one of Canada’s largest petrochemical corridors: the Chemical Valley. Siblings Vanessa Gray and Beze Gray have dedicated their lives to fighting the pollution that threatens their community’s health, safety, and future.
Presented by Broadleaf Theatre in partnership with Brock University’s Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine & Performing Arts. For tickets and more information, click here.
