Welcome to    

BellaLuna is a Vancouver-based theatre company that creates physical, comic, socially poignant theatre. Drawing inspiration from current and historical events and with a performance style informed by the traditional masked Italian theatre of Commedia Dell' Arte, our mandate is to produce entertaining work that transcends language barriers and challenges the audience to engage in the performance.

Regional Identities on a Global Scale: Translation, Audiences, Reception

This 3 all-day (March 31, April 1, 2) event brings together experts in a variety of disciplines (Literary Studies, Theatre, Film, Opera), professional translators, artists and publishers. The objective is to highlight the role of translators as cross-cultural mediators, and to underline the power dynamics at play when regional representations circulate beyond national and linguistic boundaries.
