If you’ve ever seen Michael Green do ‘The Whaler,’ you have every naked detail etched in your mind. It was wild theatre at its hilarious best — wet, nude, and undeniable.
During the 30th Annual High Performance Rodeo – Calgary’s International Festival of the Arts – The DFP Team were Listeners in Residence, recording on location, gathering your tall tales of Michael Green’s ‘The Whaler’. We borrowed your voices and built a chorus. A cacophony. A sea shanty.
At a Listening Party of this episode, held on January 29th 2016, we celebrated YOUR remembrances, YOUR belly laughs, and YOUR voices shouting out “I AM THE WHALER!” one or two – or a hundred – times more.
