Special Events

Even more ways to connect...

"Be a part of the art" at INTERSECTIONS.  Not just an observer. Be an adventurer.  Every performance will have some avenue for you to explore beyond what is on stage.  Questions for you to ponder with your peers in the audience.  Words for you to write on a wall before and after a show.  Chances to tell stories, to dance, to sing as part of the performances.  Go deeper.  See where the arts can take you.
