Nocturne


Every day two hundred species of plant, animal and insect disappear from the planet forever. Jordan Tannahill invites audiences to listen to the first two hundred notes of Chopin’s Nocturne to mark each extinction and consider how, like a note in a score, each loss is both discrete and part of a grander system. And like the abbreviated recording itself, this unprecedented dying-off is far from finished. Part of The Arctic Cycle’s Climate Change Theatre Action 2017.

The development of the SummerWorks App is supported by the Metcalf Foundation’s Creative Strategies Incubator

This is one of three projects you can only experience in the SummerWorks App.

From August 3-13, there will be location beacons at each of our main performance venues - The Theatre Centre, Factory Theatre, and Pia Bouman - and each venue will unlock a different project. Visit all three to experience original, interactive, site-specific art from SpiderWeb Show, Cara Spooner, and Jordan Tannahill.

The SummerWorks App will be available for download on Android and iOS in July.
