Day of the Dead / Día de Muertos returns to Harbourfront Centre for an eclectic, all-digital 17th season, from November 1 to 8, 2020. Toronto’s longest-running celebration of one of Mexico’s most important traditions highlights a contemporary artistic vision, including thought-provoking discussions and programming from Canadian, U.S. and Mexican artists.
Day of the Dead has deep roots in Indigenous cultures and traditions, and as we continue to face the effects of COVID-19 and the devastating impact humans have on the environment, this year’s programming explores themes of Indigeneity, resilience and environmental challenges. The festival’s aesthetic is meant to reflect our need to stay connected, informed and enriched by the arts.
This year’s programming is possible thanks to our co-production partnership with Mexico Now Festival, Museo Universitario del Chopo and New York University Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.
