100 % Vancouver

This is going to be a FANTASTIC and very interesting show. But they need some more people for it to all come together. Have a look and pass on this info to anyone you know who fits the needed demographics.

BE ONE OF 100%

Presented by Push International Performing Arts Festival and Theatre Replacement

In honour of our city’s 125th birthday, 100% Vancouver will place 100 everyday Vancouverites front and centre January 21 & 22nd, 2011, at the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.

On stage a demographic portrait of our city is created using 100 people as defined by their gender, age, cultural background, language they speak, marital status, and neighborhood in which they live.

100% Vancouver involves a live band, a revolving stage, video projection, and the stories and individuals that make up our city.  A commemorative book published by Fillip portrays of all the participants and a series of essays accompanies the show.

Eligible Participants:

Vancouver residents must meet 5 criteria: gender, age, cultural background, marital status, and neighborhood that statistically represent the city of Vancouver. You must be available for all rehearsals and performances.  You will receive an honourarium.
