Join us for a special celebration with food, drink and exciting new work from national and international young artists. The evening will feature, The Modern African, a new solo-performance from Thoko Masikini (Blantyre, Malawi); and returning to the Paprika Festival after their smash hit An Ode to Dyads, The Fishbowl Collective (Ottawa, Canada) will present As Above So Below, a new devised work written and performed by Hannah Kaya & Connor Spencer.

This showcase is part of Paprika’s new initiative called, the Presentation Series. Presentation Series is an invitation to young artists outside of Toronto to present work in progress. This new initiative brings young national and international creators into Paprika’s annual programming.
