Presented by South Asian Arts in partnership with the Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad
Performed in English, Canada, My India! was a musical play that highlighted the similarities and differences between various Indian arts and western fusions, exploring Greater Vancouver’s ethnic diversity. It was about the nostalgic memories of an immigrant woman who misses her motherland yet finds connections and similarities in her everyday life to India. Each of her neighbours embodies characteristics of different South Asian music and dance. It is cultural diversity and acceptance in Vancouver that ignites the spirits of all residents, building bridges between one of our largest ethnic groups and other cultures.
Canada, My India! was one of the first locally produced, professional shows encompassing classical, folk and fusion arts featuring artists who are among the finest in North America, including Delhi2Dublin, Entouraas, FootEdge Dance Company, Neelamjit Dhillon, Paromita Naidu, United Bhangra, UBC Girlz, DJ Tspoon, and Trisha Rampersad.
