Intersections: A Celebration of Seattle Performance is a comedy festival focused on equity, inclusion, and representation. Our first festival ran this March 22-25, 2018 at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. We showcased performers in improv, sketch, stand-up, burlesque, drag, storytelling, spoken word, music, theatre, and dance. Intersections focuses on inclusion in terms of race, gender, disability, and LGBTQIA+. We hope these performances bring new voices to the forefront, and spark conversation and action for social justice and representation in our community. We're planning our next festival for March of 2019, stay tuned for more information by following our Facebook Page and Instagram!
We celebrate incredible performers who enrich our community through their unique identities. We actively fight white supremacy, homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, ageism, and ableism. We strive to cultivate an environment of critical analysis, holding our community and ourselves accountable for the inequities that currently exist. We work to create and sustain systems that forge a new path in the direction of true equity.
