Chris Brookes is based in Newfoundland and has done a series of memorable radio pieces about the loss of the fishing industry and the impact of this loss on local lives and culture in Newfoundland. The Moratorium refers to a 1992 government decision to put a moratorium on fishing. This ended up putting 30,000 people in the fishing industry out of work and was not a successful policy for helping fish repopulate. Chris Brookes created this radio piece in collaboration with a dancer, and you can hear the rhythm and repetition and three part structure. - Described by Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellow 2019/2020, Karen Werner.
