Trailer for Oil City – site-specific theatre by Platform

A spy thriller for the post-occupy era. 10th – 21st June 2013 | 9am | 1pm | 5pm Buy Tickets at http://platformlondon.org/p-eventnew/…

This new piece of site-specific immersive theatre by Platform takes you deep into the underbelly of London’s oil economy.

Around you the financial sector shimmers in high-rise office blocks. Behind closed doors deals are done and oil projects financed with few questions asked. Meanwhile vast swathes of Alberta, Canada, teeter on the brink of ecological disaster, as the struggle to stop tar sands mining of lands protected under the First Nations’ Treaty goes on.

By eavesdropping on business people and seeking out secret documents hidden in dead-drops, you will help piece together a puzzle that interweaves government files with financial deals. But whose truth counts? And what laws apply when lives are on the line but big profits are to be made?

Alongside the performance, a mobile website is available to explore the real story in both London and Calgary, athttp://www.oilcity.org.uk

Oil City is supported by Artists’ Project Earth.
