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, it’s fitting to explore themes of Indigeneity, resilience and environmental challenges. We want to look out for each other, watch what is happening in the world, and believe that the arts are a force for change.
