We are incredibly excited to announce the artists who will be part of the 15th Paprika Festival! Full programming, ticket information and the festival schedule will be available in Spring 2016. The 15th annual Paprika Festival lands May 23rd to 29th 2016, at the Aki Studio in Regent Park, in partnership with Native Earth Performing Arts.
The Paprika Festival is currently seeking applications for our 2015/2016 artistic programs. Whether you’re starting your first project and don’t know where it could end up or you have the perfect vision for an exciting new play, Paprika can help to take your work to the next level.
The Paprika Festival's Project Original is returning to the stage as part of Ontario's Celebration Zone during the 2015 PanAm Games! If you missed this fantastic show during our May festival, you have 5 more chances to catch it (new and improved) before it's gone! Project Original explores a compilation of ideas, thoughts and stories from Toronto’s diverse Alexandra Park community. How do we identify with our communities? What does it feel like to fit in, versus not? What happens when outsiders want to change that community? What does “revitalization” really mean? Join us in our search to answer these beautiful, complicated questions, spray painting blank walls, jumping fences, and encountering the powers that be.
Yes, it's time we launch Paprika with some flare. Like Sam Smith's quiff, we're whipping up an evening of music and good times. Come mingle with this year's young artists at the 2015 home of the Paprika Festival, the Theatre Centre.
