gabriel dharmoo

interdisciplinary arts

Gabriel Dharmoo’s artistic practice encompasses composition, vocal improvisation and research. As a composer, he was awarded the Canada Council for the Arts’ Prix Jules-Léger for chamber music (2017). His solo performance Anthropologies imaginaires was prized at the Amsterdam Fringe Festival (2015) and the SummerWorks Performance Festival (2016). His next project, currently under development, draws on the complex relationship between the artist and Indian/South Asian culture and is framed as an experimental foray into Bollywood, queer sub-culture, and disconcertingly strange vocalizations.
