We're Gonna Make You Whole explores how Gulf of Mexico residents are surviving the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Based on first-hand testimony, and inspired by more than 100 interviews and extensive field research, this multi-disciplinary production includes dance, soul and gospel music and film.
Monologues from two characters, an actress and a documentary maker, are interspersed with scenes between a husband and wife, Curtis and Rochelle, whose lives are eroding, like the coastline.
Written and directed by Yasmine Van Wilt, the play challenges bio-political power of the corporation.
The play was produced at the Acquire Arts Centre, Battersea Park Road, London, 10 - 31 August 2011.
The text is published by Oberon Books.
