Aluna Theatre is proud to announce the second edition of panamerican ROUTES | RUTAS panamericanas: an International Festival of Performing Arts taking place between February 27 and March 9, 2014, at the newly opened Daniels Spectrum. This prestigious theatre event will bring Canadian, Indigenous and Latin American artists from across the Americas including Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Mexico, the United States and Canada.
Programming includes main stage performances, gallery exhibits, installations, concerts, and master classes with international artists and an engaging four-day conference on performance and human rights where artists, academics and activists meet with the public to discuss how art can mobilize social change.
“Since our first festival in 2012 we’ve traveled around the Americas to find some of the most fascinating and controversial performers,” says festival director Beatriz Pizano. “These artists have incredibly strong messages and are not afraid to shatter the status quo.”
Also new this year is Aluna Theatre’s festival partnership with the oldest professional Indigenous theatre company in Canada, Native Earth Performing Arts.
