An innovative apocalyptic cabaret about climate change, The Cave tackles the problem of animal shelter with a poetic approach. This interspecies song-cycle tells the story of animals from the perspective of celebrated Canadian Artists John Millard, Tomson Highway, and Martha Ross through song and narration.
A group of animals flee from a vicious forest fire and seek refuge in Bear’s cave. Waiting out the inferno, they reflect on their lives, their lost garden, and their impending doom. These unlikely and singed bedfellows share their stories and take comfort in their newfound community while the fire encroaches.
This show is made possible with funding from the BC Touring Council, the Province of British Columbia, the BC Arts Council, Canadian Heritage and the City of Kelowna.
