Musical theatre meets poetry in Burning Daylight, a poetry collection, and song cycle drawing together the Yukon Gold Rush of the early 20th century and the Arctic iron ore mining mega-projects of the modern day. Through a feminist lens, it examines dislocation, isolation, family, and frailty, reflected in our relationship with the ever-changing northern landscape.

Christine Fellows

Christine Fellows' songs are resolute, tuneful vessels filled with fully-formed characters and wondrous locations, lashed together with the spirit of collaboration and feminist intervention. They have sailed her to venues all over the world, sent her wheeling down the centre aisle of a darkened church wearing a papier mach? bat head, set her down in a community centre near the Arctic Circle and a palazzo garden in Venice, Italy, and left audiences altered and amazed. Burning Daylight is her first poetry collection, and her sixth studio album. She lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
