Drawing on their experience with micro and immersive performance and taking precautions to keep audiences, staff and artists safe, Boca del Lupo‘s Jay Dodge and Sherry Yoon have devised two ways for audiences to experience theatre during these extraordinary times.
Blurring the line between audience and performer, Red Phone and [email protected] have been designed as part theatre and part social intervention.
In Red Phone two audience members engage each other in a five-minute conversation written by a Canadian writer via two hand-crafted, fully enclosed phone booths outfitted with vintage red phones and an integrated teleprompter.
With [email protected] a script ‘box set’ can be ordered online and delivered to your home or picked up from The Fishbowl on Granville Island where the Red Phone experience will take place.
In this interview, we speak with Dodge and Yoon to find out more about these two unique theatre offerings during the age of COVID-19.
