Six days of performing and visual arts that celebrate the diversity, energy, and excellence of artists and audiences from DC and beyond.
The Big Meow – February 25 and March 4 @ 9:30 am
The Big Meow is the story of an ever-hopeful fluff ball who desperately wants to belong to the band of neighborhood cats, but is ostracized for a “loud as a lion’s roar” meow.  In this wonderful tale told through the experiences of  Little Cat, a potential weakness is a unique strength.  Time to experience your “inner cat” through movement and rhythm, and participate with some very large felines.
Presented as part of the Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival (at the) Atlas Performing Arts Center, Feb 24 – Mar 5, 2017

The Migration Project
March 25 @ 7:30 pm
The Migration Project explores stories of relocation layered with music and movement. Whether it is a family history dating back multiple generations, or a recent relocation, something is shared through the ‘pull’ to find better opportunity or the ‘push’ to leave because of no choice. The extraordinary increase in global migration over the past 500 years has left traces in our DNA.
