Ruby Slippers Theatre announces the launch of The Flying Monkey vlog for the 2020/21 Season with the Theatre in Multiculture: Perspectives series, featuring video interviews with BIPOC artists in the Canadian theatre industry discussing racism, intersectionality, and diversity.
This interview series deepens Ruby Slippers Theatre’s radically inclusive vision and mission, our commitment to under-represented voices, and complements other concrete actions we are taking to further BIPOC artists voices and to further diversify our own company and our own work.

Multi-award-winning Vancouver-based Ruby Slippers Theatre imagines a world where diversity is celebrated through a deeper understanding of each other. To bring this vision to reality, Ruby Slippers Theatre illuminates underrepresented perspectives and inspires independent critical thought by giving voice to diverse, female-identifying artists and by premiering significant Québec works in English translation on the West Coast of Canada.
Ruby Slippers Theatre acknowledges that we are on the stolen lands of the Coast Salish People, the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations. We are committed to learning to work in solidarity with Indigenous peoples as accomplices in shifting the colonial default.
