This month, the Sand­box Col­lec­tive raises a prover­bial mid­dle fin­ger to con­ven­tion

Scout - - INSIDE SCOUT -

here’s a new arts fes­ti­val in town—flower crowns not re­quired (thank God). The Imag­i­nar­ium is a four-day multi-arts fes­ti­val of the ab­surd spear­headed by theater company The Sand­box Col­lec­tive.

“I think the con­cept is very ex­cit­ing. Among the younger set of cre­atives, we’re now more open to col­lab­o­rat­ing with in­di­vid­u­als out­side of our genre and our com­fort,” says The Sand­box Col­lec­tive man­ag­ing artis­tic di­rec­tor Toff De Vene­cia. “You have mu­sic fes­ti­vals re­ly­ing heav­ily on the visual arts scene, mu­sic re­ly­ing on dance, and other gen­res build­ing bridges and work­ing to­gether as op­posed to work­ing against each other. I told our team of cu­ra­tors per genre that, as some­one who hails from the theater scene, I’m very much in­debted to them for all the ideas they’re bring­ing to the ta­ble. Imag­ine the kind of con­ver­sa­tions th­ese col­lab­o­ra­tions al­low, how we are all able to en­rich one another with our ideas and en­er­gies.”

Here’s a sneak peek of what to ex­pect at the fes­ti­val. For a full line-up of per­for­mances, visit www.the­sand­box­col­lec­tive.com.
