CrossCurrents Festival

Working with my partners at the Laboratory for Global Performance & Politics, I designed the visual identity for the first biannual CrossCurrents festival, a two-month series of performances in Washington, D.C., at the intersection of urgent global challenges and the arts. Works included Falling Out, a meditation on water, heartbreak, and toxic fallout inspired by the 2011 tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster; Petite Afrique, a song cycle about the African immigrant experience in Harlem by resident-artist Somi; The Chibok Girls, testimonial theater about the abduction of 276 girls by Boko Haram in 2014; and a gathering of 200+ artists from 40 countries.
