The Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival is about presenting excellent art in all its forms that inspires a community to connect and create a vibrant neighborhood, city, and world. Now in its 9th season, INTERSECTIONS is a key layer in DC’s dynamic arts scene. We invite you to explore the festival through our more than 100 offerings in SoundMovementStory, and Family performances. We would like to thank our founding media sponsor, The Washington Post for their support of the festival.

New this year: our workshop series and our expanded Youth Summit – a full day of performances by young people followed by a youth-led summit. We are also excited to partner with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in celebration of the Leonard Bernstein Centennial. Many of our Intersections artists will present works inspired by Bernstein’s music and his humanitarian work.

During INTERSECTIONS 2018, be adventurous! Experience something new and be a part of our artistic movement as you discover how arts, culture, and connection happen on H Street.

An inspiring comedic take on a true near-death experience, told through song and story. Amy Oestreicher was a theatre-obsessed teen until her world changed overnight after waking from a coma, caused by her stomach literally exploding. After 27 surgeries and six years being unable to eat or drink, Amy’s digestive system was miraculously reconstructed and she learned that the human spirit heals through “gutsiness,” gratitude, and humor.
