The singing aliens from the planet VOCA have come to San Francisco seeking fuel in the form of musical energy for their grounded spacecraft. Their mission: to refuel their spaceship by performing the music of Earthlings and return safely back to planet Voca. Created by Lior Kalfo and Shai Fishman, VOCA PEOPLE is performed by eight snow-white, ruby-lipped aliens with perfect harmony – there are no musical instruments, no sound effects, only vocals! Performed with humor and the help of the audience, VOCA PEOPLE features a cappella and beat box versions of over 70 well known songs, including hits from Madonna, Queen and even Mozart.
Called "rousing and amusing" by The New Yorker and "The coolest show ever" by Jimmy Fallon, VOCA PEOPLE has won intergalactic success with sold-out tours throughout Europe, South America, the Middle East, Mars and, most recently, a highly successful engagement at West Side Theatre Upstairs and New World Stages in New York City. Their videos on YouTube have received over 20 million hits. VOCA PEOPLE is an out-of-this-world musical theatre event you've never experienced before.
The creative team for VOCA PEOPLE includes Lior Kalfo (Director / Co-Creator), Shai Fishman (Musical Director / Co-Creator), Roy Milo (Lighting Design), Naor Ben Meir (Sound Design) and Hana Yefet (Costume Design).
