Now in its fourth year, the 2019 Monsoon Festival of Performing Arts runs August 9-13, 2019 in Vancouver and Surrey. Presented by the South Asian Arts Society, the Monsoon Festival of Performing Arts celebrates local performing arts, artists, and the wealth of knowledge they have to offer individuals and our community at large.
Join us for five days of comedy, talks, and a myriad of workshops and classes offered by prolific local performers and creators. Help us nurture the creative power within our community by attending our events, learning more about artists’ processes, and experiencing creative practices, as we invest in and support the next generation of aspiring local artists.
The festival will also present an expanded Industry Series featuring FREE staged readings, talkbacks, and development workshops in a variety of disciplines.
