The BOOM festival is an artist-led showcase of contemporary and experimental art: three days of dance, theater, visual art and family activities April 28-30.
BOOM features local and national artists with a focus on provocative work in theater, dance, spoken word and music. This year's performers include Sinergismo, a collaborative performance art ensemble; Kayla Hamilton, a dancer and storyteller; Brianna Smith with TAPROOT; spoken-word phenom Bluz Rogers; XOXO with its psychedelic western, "All The Dogs and Horse; and Mall Goth wields absurdist musical theater against the dangerous banality of middle America in "The Rise of Stepdad."
Free events and family activities will be at International House; the Intersection Stage: 1920 Commonwealth, where audience and community members can congregate in an outdoor living room with couches and a fire pit, play in the children’s activity spaces. The Intersection will include public installation and participatory visual art and games.
Ticketed performances will be at the small music venues Snug Harbor: 1228 Gordon St.; The Rabbit Hole: 1801 Commonwealth Ave.; Petra’s Bar: 1919 Commonwealth Ave.
