CINARS is offering a new international event!

These past few months have been synonymous with silence and instability in the performing arts community. Despite the health restrictions still in effect, it is now time for us to come together (virtually) in solidarity, to converse, debate, and find solutions together in order to re-appropriate our destiny.
In this context of uncertainty and apprehension, CINARS must act, now more than ever, as the meeting hub for the international performing arts community. Reaping the benefit of its experience with the Biennales, CINARS Web steps forward, so that we may maintain this vital connection, as well as to offer a not-to-be-missed multi-disciplinary online event.
The official program will be comprised of video samples of shows, followed by discussions with the artists, as well as pitch sessions, which will allow you to discover inspiring new national and international projects.
In order to offer opportunities to broaden your contact networks, as well as to meet other cultural professionals, we will be offering a virtual exhibition hall. Furthermore, we will be making available a personal introduction system, in which professionals will be brought together according to common interests, so that they can partake in customized B2B meetings.
You will also be able to share ideas in several conferences and round-table discussions, in partnership with various cultural organizations. We will offer an opportunity to reflect and make an assessment of this challenging crisis, to lend a hand to cultural diversity, to take steps towards opening borders and to imagine new possibilities that will create our common future.
With CINARS Web, CINARS intends, much like with the Biennale, to create an event in which cultural industry professionals can develop real touring opportunities, build longstanding relationships, and update their knowledge.
It is now time to step forward, to give hope wings and to look forward towards our common future.
If you wish to participate in this unique international event, registration is now open until Oct. 27th.

Reluctant to cope with one more tragedy in a school, young activist Ya Girl is ready to call it quits on leading her million-plus Instagram followers in the fight for social justice. When Melba Pattillo Beals steps out of history and into Ya Girl’s phone to share the story of her battle to integrate Little Rock Central High School in 1957, Ya Girl learns to see herself in Melba—and in all the young warriors who came before her to raise their hands and make a difference.
Inspired by Dr. Melba Pattillo Beals's Little Rock Nine memoir Warriors Don't Cry, this production is a catalyst for deeper discussion about social responsibility, civil discourse, social media, and community engagement.
Warriors Don't Cry is co-conceived by award-winning playwright Donnetta Lavinia Grays (Where We Stand) and director Tamilla Woodard (Associate Director, Hadestown), featuring original music by Toshi Reagon, spoken word, and video projection.

Combining old school whimsy with state of the art technology, ZOOOM is an enchanting story of a child alone in her bedroom, unable to sleep and curious to understand.
She begins a transformational journey with light and discovers that the dark is a magical place.
Adventures happen and the audience gets involved to help the lost star find its way home.
Inspired by iconic children’s’ book Harold and The Purple Crayon, ZOOOM channels the same philosophy; a child who makes sense of their world through art. Driven by the power of ‘child logic’, combined with the magic of science and using original music, lasers and projections, ZOOOM is a beautiful and immersive show that explores what dreams are made of.
ZOOOM begins at home or in the classroom, as we invite our audience to bring a piece of dark to the show. They arrive and their dark is exchanged for their own personal light – a little spark that will keep them safe and help guide them through the interactive sessions of the show.
