The Festival

Now in its third year, The Monsoon Arts Festival runs August 9-19, 2018 in Vancouver and Surrey, with a deliberate spotlight on South Asian theatre. 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 theatre professionals currently working in our industry.

During a span of 10 days, festival highlights include; a critically acclaimed, one-woman play, The Fish Eyes Trilogy (Toronto), which has toured internationally; a site-specific show based on historical events, The Undocumented Trial of William C. Hopkinson (Vancouver); an Industry Series featuring staged readings and development workshops in dramaturgy, playwriting, directing, acting, movement & more.
