This new issue features an interview with Salman Rushdie and Hal Wake at the Vancouver Writers Fest, and a conversation with some of Canada’s leading theatre professionals to discuss the state of South Asian Theatre in Canada. Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum is the site of an artist conversation that raises issues about 'identity' and 'Canadian art' (HELLO, This is the Diaspora Calling!). The theme of 'identity' continues in Am Johal's review of Asad Haider's book Mistaken Identity. Reviews also include a new play at the Monsoon Festival in Surrey; a 3D film installation, The Trees are Innocent, at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria; and Hanif Karim's take on Rawi Hage’s Beirut Hellfire Society.
Performance meets Islamic architecture with Dispersion at the Ismaili Centre in Burnaby, and Soheil K Esfahani translates global culture in her Culture Pallets at the Small Arts Inspection Building in Mississauga.
