“Williams makes friends with people on the bus and invites them home for dinner; Aguirre claims that she would literally kill—spill blood—if a sister asked her to do it.”
The Georgia Straight describes two extremes in the continuum of friendship brought to light in Boca del Lupo’s You Are It; a bracingly honest look at how a female friendship develops. You Are It is a new creation by prominent Vancouver theatre artists: Deb Williams and Sherry J. Yoon and featuring Carmen Aguirre. A Silver Commission of the Arts Club Theatre company, phase two in the development of this piece digs deeper into the inherent comedy and touching vulnerabilities present in female friendship. As with all Micro Performance Series shows, the audience is both a spectator and participant and who better to spend an intimate evening with that Deb Williams and Carmen Aguirre.
“You Are It exploited the intimacy of its setting and involved the audience. As Williams and Aguirre raced to see who could make friends with an audience member most quickly, Aguirre asked her target, “Would you ever join the French resistance?” – Colin Thomas

More on the Micro Performance Series…
Micro Performances ask the audience, which is rarely more than 20 at a time, to immerse themselves in a world of the artist’s creation. The association between audience and performer transcends more conventional forms as the two travel together in a relationship that is better described as participant and guide. These performances are not smaller versions of what would normally be larger productions, these are pieces that exploit what is only possible on a smaller, more intimate scale.
Micro Performance is an emerging global trend proliferating in many forms, from theatre and dance to new media, live art and interactive technology. While encompassing many different types of artists, what brings them together is how each project prizes depth of experience above all.
Each year, Boca del Lupo presents the Micro Performance Series (MPS). Centred on and around Granville Island, these productions are created and performed by local, national and international artists working across disciplines in intimate and small scale forms.
