Events (Edmonton): Sneak Preview for Thousand Faces Festival – Thousand Faces Festival

The Thousand Faces Festival returns for its 12th year for a weekend in mid-July serving as a stage for Indian diaspora classical dance artists offering what feels like a luxury of professional lighting, design support, interpretive aids, and dramaturgy to bring mythical stories to diverse audiences. This year, on July 5th, a sneak preview is scheduled at Council of India Societies of Edmonton’s India Centre, to engage with 34th Avenue businesses and clientele.

The program celebrates not only the diversity of artists but the diversity of its patrons, entrepreneurs, vendors, innovators and funders who support them. Hidden artistic gems among equity-seeking Asian heritage artists will include:

● Music by Harpist Jia Jia Yong
● Theatre by The Qala Troupe
● Indian classical dance from The Natyam Ensemble

Thousand Faces Festival Gems takes place Friday, July 5, 2024.

Mixer at 6:30 | Show at 7:30 @ The India Centre, 9504-37 Avenue

Attendees are asked to RSVP Thousand Faces Festival Gems by visiting
