Receding ice levels off the coast of Greenland reveal that an area thought to be part of the mainland is actually an island. Meanwhile, a rift grows between the island’s discoverer and his increasingly distant family, set adrift after a catastrophic loss. Nicolas Billon’s internationally acclaimed work returns to SummerWorks 10 years after its smash hit premiere, as a staged reading in support of SummerWorks and Environmental Defence. Featuring original cast members and director Ravi Jain, the question remains: how much has changed?

“A richly textured script about a family moving apart as surely as the ice flows” – NOW Magazin

Written by Nicolas Billion; Directed by Ravi Jain; Performed by Claire Calnan, Miriam Fernandes, Andrew Musselman

The listed run time includes a 15 minute Q&A on August 11 & August 15.
