Caminos Festival of Works-in-Process

TransAmerican Multi-arts Festival

This is a wonderful festival.

ALUNA THEATRE ANNOUNCES 4TH ITERATION OF TRANSAMERICAN MULTI-ARTS FESTIVAL ‘CAMINOS’  – In partnership with Native Earth Performing Arts and Factory Theatre, CAMINOS 2021 will present a combination of digital and live performance/installations featuring 32 projects involving the work of over 100 artists, as well as a series of in-depth conversations about performance from across the Americas from October 12-24, 2021.

Since its first iteration in 2015, CAMINOS has become an important platform for diversity and inclusion in Toronto’s theatre community. This year the festival looks to broaden its reach across the country and continue to provide opportunities for artists of diverse backgrounds to showcase and develop their works alongside a supportive community.

Aluna’s TransAmerican vision is a tapestry of cultures, backgrounds, and the identities of the many diasporic communities that all live, breathe, work and create on this land. The works-in-process that will be featured as part of this year’s line-up expand across a variety of mediums, languages and communities, and each provides a uniquely immersive experience for its audience.

“CAMINOS was envisioned as a platform that would allow artists to explore and experiment; dismantle eurocentric performance traditions; devise their own way of telling stories; develop new creation processes that speak to who they are; create presenting opportunities for artists; and create bridges between artists and their communities.

The artists this year challenge our perceptions of what, how, for whom, and with whom we create through theatre, dance, performance, photography, installations, and digital explorations. From stories that begin here in our neighborhoods all the way to the south of the continent, artists explore the many languages of love, gender and identities.” – Beatriz Pizano, Artistic Director
