Our Journey

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.
