The Chutzpah! Festival is currently underway presenting dozens of performances from dance and blues to plays and classes.


The diversity and high calibre of the performances from across Canada and internationally will continue to inspire audiences with their artistry, skill and dedication. We continue to throw open the doors to welcome artists from around the globe featuring performers from 6 different countries this year; Israel, Yemen, USA (New York), Italy, Poland and Canada.

Tickets are currently available for this international showcase of Jewish performing arts that runs until February 27th and I have a pair available for each of the following events:

Yemen Blues
What: The fascinating voice of Ravid Kahalani brilliantly evokes the musical universe of his ancestors in a luscious mix of jazz tonalities, funk, African grooves and ancestral rhythms.
Where: Venue on Granville
When: Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 8:00pm
Tickets: Available online

Closing Party
What: The closing party of the Chutzpah! Festival features the exotic sounds of the Middle East with urban electronic grooves and hip-hop beats courtesy of Balkan Beat Box with special guests, Klezmafour.

      I’m going to a play in Chutzpah tonight at Presentation House theatre. I didn’t even know what this festival was until a few days ago.

      You’ll probably be busy this weekend with the festival, but if you’re free on Sunday, you should come to the fundraiser the OneDance Creative Arts Centre is holding. Check out my blog for more info!
