Expanse Festival is a movement arts festival that focuses on body-based work from a cross-section of artists and offers opportunity, inspiration, education and community for artists and audiences interested in physical performance.
The festival has two main streams: a Performance Series of performance works by local, regional, national and international artists, and the Expanse Community Outreach Program which encompasses a number of activities through which the festival interacts with the Edmonton Community at large.
Expanse is one of the founding festivals of The Chinook Series, a festival of small festivals that runs for 10 days in the dead of winter. During Chinook, Expanse runs along side and interweaves with an eclectic mix of festivals: Workshop West’s Canoe Festival, Fringe Theatre Adventures, BAM! (Black Arts Matters), and SOUND OFF: A Deaf Theatre Festival.
This year’s festival dates are February 7-17, 2019.
