I love the smell of gasoline

Hosted by Nightwood Theatre


Aki Studio Theatre, 585 Dundas Street East, Toronto, ON, M5A 2B7 , Canada

Nightwood Theatre presents I love the smell of gasoline, a Pencil Kit Productions production with support from Aluna Theatre. Overhead projection meets performative research essay meets personal narrative as Claren Grosz attempts to reconcile her Alberta oil-industry roots with the current environmental emergency. I love the smell of gasoline was born of a frustration with divisive Canadian politics, rampant hypocrisy, and a lack of team spirit when facing impending doom. What does it really mean to sacrifice and to survive? How can we harness our agency and responsibility in a global crisis? This performance runs from March 8 - March 19 at the Aki Studio in Toronto.


$10 Community Access tickets: available for the March 10 and March 17 performances. ASL-English interpretation performances: Friday, March 10 at 8:00pm and Sunday, March 12 at 2:00pm. These shows will feature an ASL-English performance by Sage Lovell and ASL-English interpretation by Rogue Benjamin and Savannah Tomev. Limited PWYC tickets available to purchase at the door for each performance.
