WHO WE ARE
The Thousand Faces Festival is a multidisciplinary arts festival in Edmonton, AB that celebrates and nurtures Edmonton's and Canada's richly diverse cultural scene through mythic art and food.
THE PUBLIC FESTIVAL
An annual sumptuous multicultural banquet of food & mythic art, dance, theatre, and more! The festival brings together artists and audiences from diverse cultures to weave enchantments from their worlds of myth.
Are you a teacher interested in providing your students with a unique multicultural experience for little to no cost? Then our theatre for young audience shows are for you! Do you have a group that's young at heart? Bring our shows to your senior home or centre!
Our Mission is to bring to life the Mythic Stories at the root of our cultures,
so we may find we are all connected at the root.
The public festival traditionally features:
A STRING OF MYTHIC PEARLS
A sumptuous, whole-evening affair! Audiences move between spaces, taking in short performances of mythic theatre, dance and other performances old and new, while feasting on a multicultural banquet provided by Alberta Avenue’s best restaurants. After 10pm, the kids go home and things get bolder and louder with bands, bawdry and burlesque.
MYTHIC FAMILY JEWELS
A full afternoon of family mythic fun, usually including dance, theatre, and an interactive mythic quest that ends in free ice cream and joy!
The Thousand Faces Festival brings worlds of myth together on stage. We have been celebrating the myths and stories at the roots of Edmonton’s many cultures through theatre, music, dance, and other arts since 2012. It has been our privilege and delight to share with a diverse public the dreams of artists from Edmonton's and Canada's richly diverse cultural scene.
