At the Ko Festival of Performance we repeatedly hear about the moments of transformation and transcendence our community of audience members and artists have experienced at our home in Amherst, MA as they participate in our

  • theme-based seasons of performances and the stimulating opportunities for dialogue that follow every performance
  • intensive six-day workshops where people come to take a creative leap
  • rehearsal residencies where new work is broached in an environment of rigorous support
  • internships that expose young people, particularly women, to technical and managerial skills, multiple creative processes, and time with the extraordinary roster of artists we produce

While we continue to run a “lean and mean” operation, our costs are rising, as are those of the artists we produce. Be they moments of sublime beauty, provocative ideas, or rolling-in-the-aisles humor, we need your help to achieve them!

Ko is funded in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency; the Amherst Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, The Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts (Valley Gives), and Art Angels.

Our pre-season event at Laurel Park has support from the Northampton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Thank-you to our media sponsors: Valley Advocate,  Daily Hampshire Gazette, WRSI, and WNEPR

We are also extremely grateful to the Amherst College Department of Theater and Dance for access to the Holden Theater and Webster Hall studio spaces.
