The Atlanta Musical Theatre Festival is a three-day celebration of the community that is Atlanta. Aimed at encouraging new works and promoting Atlanta productions, the festival will present musical performances culminating to the Main Event, a fully produced world premiere. The Atlanta Musical Theatre Festival also seeks to support organizations for theatre education. In addition to performances from new works and Atlanta productions, the festival will also feature performances from local educational groups.
Catalyst Arts ATL is a local artists collective collaborating to develop artistic works that provide a catalyst for moments of discovery and community dialogue. “The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek” by Naomi Wallace will be the first Catalyst Arts Atlanta production. This play delves into issues of unemployment, and asks questions about how we define ourselves as people. The social focus for this play is on unemployment in ATL, and the partnership for this production will be with Wholesome Wave GA, a non profit providing lower income families with accessibility to locally grown food. We will be volunteering at farmers markets, donating 10% of all ticket sales to their mission, and sharing stories and interviews through social media.
Lotus SEEDs is an affiliate of a national program founded by Myra Krien. It is an after-school mentorship program for girls that builds self-esteem, empowerment and education through dance. Unlike other youth programs we incorporate non-competitive physical activity that is accessible to all body types. Unlike other dance programs we teach life skills through local resources to benefit the girls and the community.
Dance Towards Health was created to offer a non-competitive environment where participants feel comfortable engaging in recreational dance workshops, healthy and low-cost cooking demonstrations, and stress management techniques. The program was designed around the premise that utilizing dance would attract participants that already love to dance, as well as individuals who do not enjoy traditional methods of exercise.
The mission of this program is to educate children, teens, and adults who are currently or at risk of becoming overweight or obese about the benefits of regular physical activity, such as dance, how to prevent or reduce excessive weight gain by choosing healthier food options ; To provide program participants with a non-competitive atmosphere to enjoy dancing with the purpose of improving their health.
“Goddesspell” is an innovative, original musical being created in collaboration with many artists of varied disciplines as a celebration of the feminine spirit and it’s principle (yin) coming into balance with the masculine (yang). We are raising money for the first step in this journey which is the presentation and touring of a preview concert by the core ensemble (including The Pacha Mamas) which we are calling “A Touch of the Goddess.”
