CINARS is a non-profit organization located in Montreal whose mission is to promote and support the Quebec and Canadian performing arts. Although the CINARS Biennial is its main activity, celebrating its 19th edition in May next year, activities also take place throught the year. Among them, are these conferences held online this year.
As part of its mission to promote Basque culture abroad, the Etxepare Basque Institute has had the opportunity to support several of Kulunka’s productions abroad. Among them, "Andre and Dorin" in the CINARS Biennial 2021. This activity is part of the Saison Québec-Pays Basque initiative promoted by the Etxepare Basque Institute.
