Take an imagined journey across the Pacific as heard from inside a shipping container in The Voyage: Boca del Lupo, part of Micro Performance Series 2013, March 27 to 30.

715,195 laden shipping containers arrived in the Port of Vancouver in 2011 including 2,877,676 metric tonnes of ‘Household Goods’, 1,160,636 metric tonnes of ‘Construction & Materials’, 355 930,610 metric tonnes of ‘Industrial, Auto and Vehicle Parts’ and 1,548,748 metric tonnes of ‘Others.’

Included in ‘Others’ are some of the 600 individuals that the RCMP estimates are smuggled into the country each year. The Voyage takes the audience across the Pacific, inside one of those shipping containers. Presented inside an actual shipping container placed on the old loading ramp on Granville Island, participants embark on this 20‐minute sonic journey that takes place completely in the dark.
