Here are some photos from our performance of REACTOR today in the Pearson Bridge underpass on the Nanaimo waterfront to mark the third anniversary of the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in Japan.

REACTOR (consisting of “Reactor 1” and “Reactor 2”) was written and performed by Kim Clark, Darryl Knowles, and Kim Goldberg. It is a polyphonic interlacing of six separate poems to create a poetic rendering of the chaos and loss off coherence that accompanies a nuclear meltdown.

Following the performance, members of the audience shared Fukushima-inspired poems they had brought for the occasion. Poetry was shared by Amy Falkenberg, Katy McCuish, and Mary Ann Moore.
