The Festival

In its second year, The Monsoon Arts Festival runs August 6-13 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.

Festival Schedule


The Monsoon Arts Festival is unique, given that no other broadly-focused South Asian performing arts festival exists in Canada.
