Line Breaks Festival

OMAI’s Line Breaks Festival is comprised of performances, lectures, and discussions by First Wave students and invited professional artists engaging with the local campus community. Inaugurated through OMAI’s sponsored Marc Bamuthi Joseph Arts Institute Residency in the spring of 2007, the Line Breaks project culminated in a final performance of student work called “Just Bust!” – an event, which has evolved into our monthly open mic, now running for 11 years. Line Breaks has since evolved into a week long festival that cultivates performance art and brings the top new aesthetics in contemporary performance art to the UW-Madison campus and surrounding community.
