RUMBLE IS THE VANCOUVER LIVE STREAM PARTNER FOR THE CAVE’S CANADIAN PREMIERE
While the forest fire rages all around, destroying everything in its path a group of animals escapes to what they believe will be the safety of The Cave. As they try to wait it out their anxiety grows. Some animals retreat into memories, others become increasingly aware of the centuries of human activity that has led to the obliteration of their homes.
An entertaining apocalyptic cabaret created by celebrated Canadian artists John Millard (composer), Tomson Highway (lyrics), and Martha Ross (dramaturg), The Cave is an intimate, urgent response to our changing environment, that poses questions about climate change, and who is responsible for this land and the lives that inhabit it?
An evening of riveting storytelling and music, told by the innocents, challenges us all. The Cave will be live-streamed to locations near and far on Saturday, June 22nd, including by Rumble in Vancouver. Other partners include the Banff Centre, the National Arts Centre, and Nakai Theatre in Whitehorse. The livestream that is simultaneously watched all over Canada and the world inspires and defines the spirit of the project.
