In Genetic Drift, Pi Theatre considers a scenario where bio-diversity has been erased from the earth. Our show takes place in 2167, where human genetic engineers have fully manipulated the genome to create a human-insect-animal hybrid that can survive extended 150-degree heat with little water.
This project was conceived of by artistic director Richard Wolfe and will be created in collaboration with Pi's Artistic Associate, Amy Lee Lavoie. We're also working with costume designer Amy McDougall on what these hybrids will look like.
Genetic Drift will be featured in Boca del Lupo's Micro Performance Series and hit the stage from April 5-8, 2017 at the Fishbowl on Granville Island.
This work will be developed throughout the year, so watch out for updates about what we're doing and who we're working with!
