About the show

Join us this January for the annual festival where process becomes the focus. Beautifully produced, yet still in development, CULTUREMART provides a platform for our resident artists to blur the boundaries between dance, theatre, music, new media, puppetry, and visual art, melding these forms to support their adventurous visions. This year’s program features 12 workshop performances spanning topics as varied as natural architecture, clones, America, cultural representation, and everything in-between.

CULTUREMART is a vital testing ground, an environment where you can sample live art in progress, provide feedback and play a crucial role in the development of new work. With a limited number of performances, festival tickets sell fast. Check out CULTUREMART and let our images fill your imagination.
