MINI REVIEW

As Floyd (Sheldon Elter), a Metis oil sands worker on the run from the RCMP after a workplace accident, makes his way through the Canadian wilderness, he is watched over by his mother (Tracey Nepinak) and a chorus of creatures who help protect him. Elter combines his own bear-like stature with genuine emotional heft for a mesmerizing performance. The eight-person chorus meticulously creates many environments along Floyds journey. Writer/director MacKenzies staging intersperses choreographer Monica Dottors stunning movement sequences with a succession of monologues that boast exquisite use of language, political bite and humour.
