South Asian Arts Society Presents The Monsoon Festival of Performing Arts
August 9-13, 2019

THE FESTIVAL

Now in its fourth year, the Monsoon Festival of Performing Arts runs August 9-13, 2019 in Vancouver and Surrey, celebrating local performing arts, its artists, and the wealth of knowledge they have to offer individuals and the community at large. South Asian Canadians are the largest visible minority group in Canada, yet a simple scan of Vancouver’s performing arts community suggests that there are very few South Asian professionals currently working in the industry.

During a span of 5 days, festival highlights include; a stand-up comedy night featuring some of Greater Vancouver's finest comedians; an expanded Industry Series featuring FREE staged readings, talkbacks, and development workshops in areas including (but not limited to) playwriting, comedy, mindfulness, digital marketing, and movement.
