WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Written and performed by Patricia Buckley, Evolution combines the Paleontological history of whale evolution with a contemporary tale of a woman's extraordinary transformation and her family's attempts to prevent it. Dually inspired by the visual work of artists such as Robert LePage and Theatre de la Jeune Lune and creation myths and scientific facts, Evolution seeks to illuminate the self-contained world of a family - how family members construct each others identities while trying to shape their own, how decades can be spent inhabiting an "assigned" persona and how, in the process, we can lose any certainty as to what our "true identity" is. The production is directed by Jean-Claude van Itallie.
