JOIN US ONLINE FOR OUR 3RD NAUTANKI FESTIVAL
STARTING NOV 26.2022
Featuring work by 10 brilliant artists from Canada and India!
You are invited to our 3rd Nautanki festival: "Pataka! POP! Badaboom!" ~ this year in collaboration with Nautanki Bazaar Productions, and made possible through the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council.
The Nautanki festival includes 5 new creations (works in progress, experiments, ideas in motion, etc!) by our “Artist Date Series” participants. In this series, we paired 5 artists from India with 5 artists from Canada to work and create together virtually during the months of September - November 2022.
Our artists include dancers, visual artists, writers and theatre artists - and all the pairings are interdisciplinary (eg. a visual artist has been paired with a dancer).
The festival begins with a sharing of the works (1 hour), followed by a live post show chat on Nov 26 with all of the artists involved. Come see the beauty of what can be created, and how *sparks fly* when 2 artists from 2 different parts of the world come together to collaborate!
