In 2027 an Apocalyptic lockdown in Moh’kinsstsis (Calgary) holds a grade 7 classroom captive during school hours. The students anxiously await their fate, not sure what is going on in the outside world, and Josh, a Blackfoot student, comes to grips with his identity and the true history of the land and the universe. When the trickster comes barreling in unexpectedly, Josh must face a lesson in colonial disorder and his own past.

You should be listening to this episode at the Confluence of the Bow and Elbow River, a geographic site in the East Village neighbourhood of Downtown Calgary. It is located along the Calgary RiverWalk just north of 9th Ave SE and the Elbow River Traverse and east of 6th ST SE and Fort Calgary.

We have a map of the location, as well as directions, on our website: www.theatrejupiter.com/explore-episode4
