Growing frustrated with a theatre landscape low on parts for Asian-Canadians, Ins Choi decided to create one. The result was Kim’s Convenience, which went from winning Best New Play at the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival to sold-out runs at Soulpepper, to national touring and being optioned for film and television. Playwright and actor Ins Choi joins writer/performer Alix Sobler and Winnipeg-based theatre artist Kevin Klassen to discuss creating their own roles. Moderated by Nick Hutcheson, Spur’s Artistic Producer.

Spur is a national festival of politics, art and ideas and is a catalyst for change in Canada.

Through nationally relevant and locally nuanced discussions, presentations and performances, the festival seeks to spur its participants to action on issues affecting Canadians. Feisty, multi-partisan, forward-looking, and solution-driven, this national railway of ideas will provide Canada with vital new cultural infrastructure for the 21st century.

Founded in 2013, the festival has already grown from three to five Canadian cities, with plans for further expansion across the country. Produced by the Literary Review of Canada in partnership with Diaspora Dialogues, Spur prides itself on its community partnerships, cultural connections and a focus on accessibility and diversity.
