FERUS Festival is National Sawdust’s annual cutting-edge music and multimedia performance festival. This year’s program will explore our season’s themes with boundary-breaking music, dance, and conversations.
A critically acclaimed theater director. A poet and TED Global Fellow. An award-winning composer. How can artists and arts workers shape the transformational and polarizing moments of today? Join the artistic leadership trio of Kamilah Forbes, Marc Bamuthi Joseph, and Paola Prestini—from the Apollo Theater, the Kennedy Center, and National Sawdust—on the #ActiveHopePodcast, an engaging public conversation in the pursuit of inspiration for all. It all starts with a live virtual event at 5 p.m. ET on January 8, 2021.
Performances are free, but we would love to keep in touch. We will provide artist lineups, updates on scheduling, and resources to accompany the performances. We will NOT share your information with anyone else.
