The Echo Collective Presents Kayak by Jordan Hall
The Echo Collective, a group of talented Vancouver-based performers and designers, is staging a production of Kayak, Jordan Hall’s touching and provocative play about climate change. This production will run from October 29 to November 2 at the Havana Theatre.

Director Sloan Thompson, an MFA Directing Candidate at the University of British Columbia, adds her own fresh take to this story about love, family, and the difficult choices we all must face in the growing climate emergency. The Echo Collective is also teaming up with Extinction Rebellion Vancouver in order to get audiences involved in local climate change activism.
“At its heart, Kayak is about the life that we want for ourselves and for the people we love. Unfortunately, because of climate change, that life is slipping further and further out of our grasp. When people walk out of the theatre at the end of this play, I want them to ask themselves, ‘What can I do to stop this disaster and protect the people that I love?’ If we can move people so much that they want to fight, then the show will have been a success.” - Sloan Thompson
Featuring a cast of professional Vancouver-based actors and starring Denyse Wilson as Annie Iversen, Kayak will leave audiences laughing, crying, and ready to pick up a protest sign and march in the streets!Single tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the door or online here.
