Masae Day (THE GREAT DIVORCE) has co-created and is performing in SOUL RESOURCE at Studio 58 with her class.
Studio 58, the nationally renowned professional theatre training program at Langara College, presents the Risky Nights production of SOUL RESOURCE, a classic story of jealousy and greed that looks at our abuse of natural resources in a very human context, directed by Rachel Peake.
Soluma: the forest home of a photosynthetic race who live off the land, never venturing outside of their own borders. ONX: a technologically savvy city of metal and lights under the watchful eye of an all-controlling Leader. As an energy crisis threatens the ONX way of life, a fateful meeting between the two worlds brings ONX a new hope: the Sols' photosynthetic energy as a source of power. However, as we begin to see the measures that the ONX is willing to take to attain this power the question arises: when does need become greed?
Now in its 12th season, the Risky Nights Series is designed as a bridge between classroom work and main stage productions. At the conclusion of their second year of training, students have an invaluable opportunity to create every aspect of an original theatre piece from start to finish with a professional director, and perform it for an intimate audience.
