2022 Festival Programming

WE. ARE. BACK. This year we return to our 11-day Festival format, and we are thrilled to share our programming for this summer with you!

Grounded in an expanded Public Works stream, this year’s Festival offers city-wide engagement like never before!! We can’t wait to engage 13 neighbourhoods across Toronto, introduce ourselves to new audiences, and also have the opportunity to reconnect with you. SummerWorks Presentations, Exchange and Labs are returning this year, with over 30 performances, workshops and events in person for you to choose from, as well as an extensive array of online and hybrid experiences on offer too.

Cultivating space for exploration and innovation through theatre, dance, music, live art, interdisciplinary, and hybrid forms, this year’s Festival offers you a variety of dynamic ways you can engage as a participant or spectator.

We hope you’ll join us August 4th – August 14th as we re-familiarize, recalibrate and reimagine our relationships with our city and each other.
