Driftless Phase 1

Driftless Phase 1 was presented by The Drift on October 19, 2013, under the 31st Street Bridge on Herr's Island in Pittsburgh. This site-specific performance lasted about 30 minutes and took the form of a love poem from the Midwest’s Driftless region to the Marcellus Shale of Western Pennsylvania. Written in frack sand and natural gas, Driftless navigates an encounter between the non-profit world of environmental activism and the reality of hydraulic fracturing. Mixing real accounts of this issue with US tax code, a Roman Catholic Mass, the writings of Plutarch, and corporate literature, Driftless enters and fills the complex cracks and fractures of a complicated conversation.
