CELEBRATING THE WORK OF 22 BRILLIANT ARTISTS
FROM INDIA AND CANADA

This year, our festival includes an incredible number of works, experiments and sharings from 22 artists whom we've had the pleasure of collaborating with this summer.


 8 of these creations are by our “Artist Date Series” participants. In this series, we paired 8 artists from India with 8 artists from Canada to work together throughout the month of July 2021.


Our artists include dancers, visual artists, writers, theatre artists, filmmakers and photographers - and all the pairings are interdisciplinary (eg. a Kathak dancer from India has been matched with a poet from Canada).

In addition, we will also be showcasing the work of 6 phenomenal dance artists from India in a series called “Moved,” to pay special tribute to our dance community in India. This series includes Tribal fusion bellydance, Bharatnatyam, contemporary dance, and physical theatre.
