Enter the Gorshey

Created by Mammalian Diving Reflex in collaboration with Nineteen59, Enter the Gorshey is inspired by centuries-old, massive, intergenerational Tibetan dance gatherings.

Under the direction of local young people in and around the neighbourhoods of Parkdale and Etobicoke, Enter the Gorshey invites audiences to go through several stages of learning various facets of Tibetan culture – from the origin of Momos to Tibetan Buddhism, to achieve the ultimate right of passage. You are not just an audience; you will have to learn, engage and win the trust of the young people, to earn your place, and Enter the Gorshey.

The public city event will take place at Amos Waites Park in Toronto this July 27th from 1-3pm during Tibetan Heritage Month.

Stay tuned for date and time announcements.
