INTERSECTIONS Festival: Bernstein Centennial

The Atlas is thrilled to be partnering with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in celebration of the Leonard Bernstein Centennial. Many of our Intersections Artist will present work inspired by Bernstein and his work as a humanitarian, activist, and artist.Founded in 2009, INTERSECTIONS is a multi-day multi-arts festival that offers a kaleidoscope of perspective on our world. Inspired by Bernstein’s call to “make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before,” festival programming gives emphasis to artists and arts groups who embrace all the arts as social action – as a unifying response to division and injustice. This emphasis will culminate in over a dozen tributes to Bernstein through arts lobby activation, family events, movement, story, sound and beyond.

Featured tributes include:
Monumental Theatre Company
Motion X
Dissonance Dance Theatre
Gin Dance Company
Flo Anito
LeDroit Chamber Players
Capital City Symphony
Dance Exchange
Elements Dance Company
Art as Reflection, Response, and Action
Artspace Activation
