New Initiative: The 3.7%
Boca del Lupo is now accepting applications for The 3.7% Initiative!
Named for the low percentage of key creative roles in Canadian theatre held by ethnically and culturally diverse women (including those of aboriginal or mixed racial heritage), this initiative supports women who have a strong desire to change that statistic by taking their performing arts career into their own hands.
Led by Boca del Lupo’s Artistic Director Sherry Yoon and Associate Producer Intern Ming Hudson, the group aims to build a strong and supportive community of diverse females who are willing to work together and create change right here at home in Vancouver.
Members of The 3.7% will benefit from peer-to-peer support and free programming such as workshops, local and national guest speakers, open discussions and cultural activities. Monthly meetings will commence in March 2016 and will be held at various spaces in Vancouver.

New Project: Expedition
This past October, the Boca del Lupo team had the incredible opportunity to perform at the Dublin Theatre Festival, where they collaborated on a brand new piece with Ireland’s Performance Corporation.
Expedition imagines the world a century from now. What will we have learned and how will we look back? In a series of provocative and ironic interventions the audience are “future historians”, trying to make sense of today’s mistakes with the luxury of 100 years of hindsight. This presentation was the first step in a larger scale event to be staged in port cities around the world.
Keep you eyes peeled for more exciting news about Expedition in 2016! Find out more about this collaborative, international project.
