Boca Loca Lab was founded in 2007 with the creation of the production, Ticks Ticks Politics. The performance was awarded the Prize for an original theatre expression on the international festival KONTAKT 2009 in Torun, in Poland and the award in the section LOW BUDGET/NO BUDGET on the Music theatre NOW festival in Berlin. Then followed, Click on the Video (2007), in which the company began working with internet commentary of the execution of Saddam Hussain. The Europeans (2008) deal with the extensive threat of the media which surrounds today`s European. The last master piece Teritorium shows how everything personal create territory of each other.

„Boca Loca means „crazy, mad, glib-tongued" in Spanish and Italian. 

„A stream of sound and words, emanating from the mouths of the performers, are a tradesmark of this company.In the project Ticks Ticks Politics mouths choke and hiccup during speeches of political leaders. In Europeans mouths pass through apocalyptic screams. In Territorium mouths spew a list of things with which we surround ourselves, in order to create our own territory in which to encapsulate ourselves. Sometimes mouths are shut cluelessly. At others they whine, shout, groan, wail. Boca Loca Lab is a laboratory of theatre of opening mouths, theatre-concert, theatre-performance, multimedial theatre, theatre of words and sound, geometrical theatre, theatre of invocation and exorcising."
