#YYCTheatreStats Fall/Winter 2020 Part 2

Hey friends! Here is our final round of #YYCTheatreStats for 2020. #YYCTheatreStats Fall/Winter Edition – Part 2!

Some quick notes/info about this data:

  • You will notice that for Storybook Theatre we have a section line called ‘LGBTQIA2S+’. That is because, Storybook Theatre actually compiles their own statistics for their projects! We are happy to honour their process. We highly recommend checking out their commitment to inclusion and diversity on their website.
  • For ‘Making Love with the Land Performance’ and ‘Christmas Carol: A Drag Story’, we show data reflecting their core cast and creative team. There were other people involved in the projects that we were not able to get information on, but if we do, we will update those numbers!

#YYCTheatreStats is now generously supported by Calgary Arts Development🥳! These statistics are used for information and research purposes only. Contact us on Facebook or email us at jenna@chromatictheatre.ca if you have any corrections.

NOTE: This data does not reflect any diversity beyond perceived and indicated race and gender.It is important to say that representation of BIPOC folx, women, non-binary people, gender-nonconforming people, 2 Spirited folx, disabled people, LGBTQIA+ folx, and others who come from oppressed communities, mean very little if we are not committing to Anti-Racist and Anti-Oppression work in our practices. Representation is a step in the lifelong journey towards Anti-Oppression.

#YYCTheatreStats – Summer/Fall 2020 (part 2)

We are pleased to share with you a round of Summer/Fall #YYCTheatreStats (Part. 2)!

It is important to say that representation of BIPOC folx, women, non-binary people, gender-nonconforming people, 2 Spirited folx, disabled people, LGBTQIA+ folx, and others who come from oppressed communities, mean very little if we are not committing to Anti-Racist and Anti-Oppression work in our practices.

#YYCTheatreStats – Summer/Fall 2020 (part 1)

Hey Y’all! It’s been a minute. We didn’t know if we were going to be able to continue our #YYCTheatreStats with the covid-induced pause that’s been placed on live theatre… but our YYC theatre community has pulled through and created some incredible and innovative online theatre content! We are pleased to share with you a round of Summer/Fall #YYCTheatreStats (Part 1).

You’ll notice that the statistics look a bit different this time around because now we’ve included GENDER IDENTITY! We thought it was imperative to include gender identity as a part of our ongoing commitment to the The 35//50 Initiative. This is new for us and we are still learning, but we are curious and excited to see how these statistics change and grow over the five year goal outlined by The 35//50 Initiative.

As always with our statistics, we do make mistakes, so if you see incorrect information please let us know! Contact us on Facebook or email us at jenna@chromatictheatre.ca. NOTE: This data does not reflect any diversity beyond perceived and indicated race and gender. Finally, it is important to say that representation of BIPOC folx, women, non-binary people, gender-nonconforming people, 2 Spirited folx, disabled people, LGBTQIA+ folx, and others who come from oppressed communities, mean very little if we are not committing to Anti-Racist and Anti-Oppression work in our practices. Representation is a step in the lifelong journey towards Anti-Oppression. Stay tuned for Part 2 next week!

#YYCTheatreStats – 2019/20 ROUNDUP!

The wait is over! Here is our #YYCTheatreStats of the 2019/2020 season.

#YYCTheatreStats was created by Jenna Rodgers and Kristen Padayas with inspiration from Sam Jeffery’s #YEGTheatreStats. These stats were created two years ago in order to shine a light on how many IBPOC folx (Indigenous, Black, Person of Colour) were hired in the Calgary theatre community.

Acknowledging that COVID-19 ground our theatre community to a halt, these statistics encapsulate information collected from shows that opened between September 2019 to mid-March 2020. We would like to send out our thanks to everyone who helped us compile these stats whether it be acquiring programs for us or sending in corrections! We have put our data* in the form of some charts for your viewing:

1) Cast Analysis of IBPOC hired per company
2) Creative Analysis of IBPOC hired per company
3) Combined Cast and Creative Analysis of IBPOC hired per company
4) Monthly Averages of Cast and Creative IBPOC hired
5) Shows with the Highest Amount of IBPOC hired
6) Shows with the Lowest Amount of IBPOC hired

*This data does not include information beyond perceived and indicated race.
