Calling All Polar Bears is a one-woman show that debuted at Pangea Theatre (with Intermedia Arts) in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2011 as part of their Indigenous Voices series. The one and a half hour show brings audiences virtually to Kaktovik, where Warden's mom was raised. The show explores the push to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and the varied opinions of people and animals who would be impacted if drilling was to occur. The show has travelled to: Homer, Alaska; Berlin, Germany and London, England.
