“Don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter. It’s quiet but the roots are down there riotous”
— Rumi

Celebrate the winter solstice with performances that channel timeless stories through music, song, dance, chants, and whirling dervishes. This intimate presentation gives you the opportunity to experience the transformative ritual of the season’s change with an eclectic group of national and international dance and music artists. 

A co-production with Sashar Zarif Dance Projects and the Ismail Centre, Toronto, this event is part of our 2019/20 Performing Arts season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performative arts in connecting communities, preserving culture, and spurring social change.
