What happens when you mix oil and fire? What happens when you mix Corporate Oil with the fire of religious zeal? Weibo Ludwig learned the answer to that when he tried it out. A theatre company in Calgary decided to explore the resulting explosion, adding their own fuel to the fire. Now it’s coming to Edmonton.
“An Eye For An Eye blinds with its brilliance.” – Edmonton Journal
Winner of the 2001 Betty Mitchell Award For Outstanding Musical Production
It started with a simple notion: To create a musical cabaret about the conflict between rural Albertans and the activities of the oil and gas industry; specifically, the effect of sour gas wells and their hazards on rural Albertans. During an eight-day residency at the Banff Centre, the company plunged into some serious research about the Wiebo Ludwig case. They researched newspaper clippings, the internet, spoke to farmers in the Prince Albert area, and watched the video Home Sour Home, made by the Ludwigs to illustrate their plight.
Each actor went away to write from the point of view of their character and came back to argue for that point of view. They did group improvisations, with the show’s Stage Manager transcribing as fast as she could, and from those improvs, began to develop the scenes that worked best. It became a story that represents every point of view, and by doing that, it has challenged everyone’s perceptions.

DR. DRAGANA BREBERIN ON: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF MONEY
February 26, 2003 / Infoline: 448-2707 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
@ The Varscona Hotel, 8208 – 106 Street, Edmonton, AB (Canada)
People speak of money as though they understand it: what it does for them and how best to use it. But is that really the case? Is your financial status controlling you or serving you? What are you trying to accomplish with money? What is the best way to achieve your desired results?
Whatever your circumstances, you will find it beneficial to discuss what money can and cannot do for you, where you got your ideas about money and how you use your attitudes about money to guide your handling of money matters. Participants will have an opportunity to share their feelings and experiences about money and to examine alternative attitudes towards it in a constructive, thoughtful environment.
About Dr. Dragana …
Dr. Dragana Breberin is a clinical physiologist with an extensive, interdisciplinary education & over twenty-five years of experience in helping a diverse range of people to become the best they can be. In her experience, peoples’ perception of money is often mismatched with the true possibilities available to them with it. Money is an artificial construct therefore our attitudes towards it determine our experience with it. We have far more control and opportunity with our financial status than most people realise.
