Description: Hamline University’s Department of Theatre & Dance is excited to continue it’s 88th season with Petroleum, a devised piece directed by Taous Khazem. In Myanmar there are many "do it yourself" oil drillers. They often drill sites that large companies have abandoned. It is said that a dragon dwells underneath a volcano near these oil fields. This dragon can give and the dragon can take away. When the dragon gives, the volcano erupts, the earth shifts, and more oil is released.When the oil dries up, it is a sign the dragon has decided to take away. Built from scratch in the style of physical theatre, Petroleum uses this mythology to ask the questions, who is our dragon and what is the earthquake?
