We’ve started our journey as an Ad Hoc theatre group in Vancouver, BC in 2012.

For four years, Blackout Theater has been creating socially conscious and innovative theatre for the Persian community on the North Shore with the help of local Persian artists.

Since 2016 we are working as a registered organization in BC, funded by Amirnaeim Hosseini and Soha Sanajou.

We have a desire to open up our work to the broader community by producing in both Persian and English, attracting a broader diversity of audiences, and joining the stream of government-funded companies.We are proud to have a touch of our Persian culture in most of the work that we do. 

Our Mission

Is to create innovative and original theatre experiences that engage and invite people to think critically about the community and inspire them to dig deeper into themselves.


Blackout Theatre’s mandate is:

  • To produce and present theatre which exposes current social issues

  • To introduce and expose immigrant artists to Canadian theatre in order to build bridges between different cultures

  • To produce and present theatre that will impact future generation and provide a better understanding of our diverse society 

  • To provide innovative and proactive theatrical entertainment 

  • To produce high quality and engaging experiences for our community

  • To introduce Persian theatre to the more diverse community


Blackout Theatre would have not reached this point without the support of our sponsors, friends, partners, and donors. Your support would make it possible for our team to keep the theatre industry flourishing and to create bigger, bolder and even more exciting shows. 

With your help, we can continue to expand our work and provide opportunities for ambitious productions of thought-provoking plays performed by top-quality theatre professionals. 

Please note that we’re always open to discuss suggestions regarding different sponsorship options or other creative additions to ensure that our sponsors will receive the maximum benefit from our shows.
