Re-Connect Online Performance Festival is a collective performance arts project that uses digital media technologies to reconnect artists and audiences during the social distancing era. The festival closes that distance by providing an inclusive digital platform for artists to engage global audiences with new, challenging performance art.
Created in March of 2020 in response to the global pandemic, our festival events bring artists from around the world together as an act of solidarity. The first edition of the festival took place between March 25-April 17, 2020. Featuring 45 live performances and 20 lecture or panel discussions selected from 122 applications, we introduced audiences to artists across 5 continents. Viewers enjoyed multilingual events broadcast live from Iran, Lebanon, Egypt, Nigeria, Japan, India, Germany, Romania, the USA, and other countries.
