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 with the help of local Persian artists.
Since 2017 we are working as a registered not for profit organization in BC, but 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
