I came to Winnipeg because I had heard how strong the arts community was and because I wanted to create theatre that could create social change. It has been the ideal place to do that. Not only is it a vibrant place for artists but there is a strong sense of giving back. Combining the two is a powerful thing.

Art lets us explore what it means to be human and to see the world through someone else’s eyes. Sarasvàti strives to make it accessible to all of the community so we can hear stories that will increase our understanding.
