Boca del Lupo (Canada)

With Red Phone, Boca del Lupo offers an experience that’s both theatrical and social–a chance to perform and to bond over shared experience. Participants are given a choice of scripts to perform in pairs; the dialogues are then acted out in two hand-crafted, fully enclosed phone booths, each with an integrated teleprompter; afterwards, each person is invited to have a discussion with their partner about the experience.

The dialogues are composed by some of Canada’s best writers, and each makes for a compelling theatrical experience; the boundaries, the contours and the quality of that experience is in each pair’s hands, and will change with each private partnership. It’s a chance to perform for an audience of one, and, at the same time, be that audience of one. Intimate, inventive and inclusive, this is a work that democratizes theatre and collapses the boundary between artist and audience.
