The Absurdity of Being an Artist

Now in its 11th year, The Transmodern Performance Festival is one of Baltimore’s best-loved festivals celebrating radical, live art both on and off the stage. This year’s festival activates four different venues in the Bromo Arts District of downtown Baltimore and the spaces in-between with a full week of genre-defying performances, immersive environments, installations, exhibitions, dance, film and readings…all kicking off with an Equinox Parade at twilight on September 21st, to celebrate the change of seasons!

Tickets on sale now at: http://transmodernfestival.com/tickets-2/
