West Coast Tagore Festival, now in its 9th year, is the flagship multicultural performing arts event by Vancouver Tagore Society. Like the previous years, the Festival would bring together professional, passionate artists from different backgrounds and heritages. The event would take place at the Gateway Theatre in Richmond on November 16, 6-8:15 PM. Admission is free.
This year’s lineup includes a large group of dancers from the Richmond Academy of Dance showcasing various Western Classical dances, including Ballet, Tap, and Lyrical Jazz; Genesis Trio, a Vancouver based chamber ensemble, playing Western Classical melodies in viola, clarinet, and piano; a dance duo from the Mandala Arts and Culture performing Bharatanatyam, a major form of Indian classical dance; performances by the Vancouver Tagore Society Workshop Series participants; and Taan, the in-house specialty band of Vancouver Tagore Society, presenting a musical theatre based on some timeless Tagore songs that reflect different colours of life.
Vancouver Tagore Society is a not-for-profit organization promoting multiculturalism and diversity through artistic endeavors. The event is supported by cultural grants from the City of Richmond and the BC Arts Council. If you have any questions, please contact at VancouverTagoreSociety@gmail.com.
