The product of a unique partnership between the University of Toronto's Professor Rebecca Woods and the experimental performance company Good Old Neon, "The Last Mammoth" is a 50 minute theatrical performance for children six and up. Using puppetry, song, and gesture, "The Last Mammoth" uses the figure of a woolly mammoth to introduce the concept of extinction in the context of climate change to young audiences, including the asymmetries of history and social justice it entails.
The show is directed by Good Old Neon co-Artistic Director Nicole Wilson, and features performances by Sebastian Biasucci, Hayden Finkelshtain, Gabbi Kosmoiis Priscila Paes, and Iza Rincon, and dramaturgy by co-Artistic Director and IHPST Phd. Candidate Alexander Offord. Stage management by Hazel Moore.
The showing will take place at the Palmerston Library Theatre, at 560 Palmerston Avenue, Toronto, on September 1st, 10:00am. This event is in person only.
