Chinook Series is Edmonton’s international curated arts series. We are showcasing the most acclaimed contemporary art taking place across Alberta, the nation, and the world. Bringing together dynamic, daring, and cutting edge artists across five distinct performance streams, Chinook offers the best in theatre, dance, and performance art.

Brought to life by three of Edmonton’s bravest producing companies – Azimuth Theatre, Fringe Theatre, and Workshop West Playwrights’ Theatre in partnership with SOUND OFF: A Deaf Theatre Festival and Black Arts Matter – Chinook Series offers two hot weeks of live performance.

Together, artists and audience will come together to celebrate creativity, community, and collaboration.

Over the next 11 days, you will:

  • experience boundary-breaking performance;
  • engage in mind-bending conversation; and
  • connect with the arts community on an intimate level.

This year, we dare you to take in as much of the Chinook experience as possible. Let’s go!
