The Rosslyn Business Improvement District’s SuperNOVA performance art festival, June 7-9, was a huge success. Many visitors, residents and workers came to Rosslyn to enjoy the work of nearly 100 performance artists who traveled to Rosslyn from Spain, Finland and throughout the United States.

The festival was held across multiple locations in Rosslyn including Artisphere, Gateway Park, Freedom Park, Central Space, Crandal Mackey Park, Dark Star Park, several open retail spaces and the Rosslyn BID’s office.

Featured performers included JJ McCracken’s The Still Point at Dark Star Park. Jeffry Cudlin’s Rosslyn Redpoint climbers did a horizontal climb from Georgetown’s Key Bridge to 1911 N. Fort Myer Drive. Spain’s Mönica Cofiño performed Text and Dance for Cows in Central Space. Another highlight: Finland’s Nutty Tarts staged Happy Campers in Central Space.

SuperNOVA was sponsored by the Rosslyn BID and produced by Philippa Hughes’ Pink Line Project.
