This summer, witness the epic tale of humanity’s impact on the planet at Edward Burtynsky’s epic new immersive experience, In the Wake of Progress at the Canadian Opera Company Theatre in Toronto. This fully choreographed blend of photographs and film, 40 years in the making from world-renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky immerses you into a powerful 30-minute experience of global landscapes, revealing primordial beauty alongside the stark impacts of human industry.

In the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic and as we face one of the next major challenges of our time — the climate crisis — Burtynsky's latest project, In the Wake of Progress dares us to have an important conversation about the legacy of the widespread impacts of human industry and what they mean for the future of life on this planet.
