The Modern Atlanta Dance Festival
The Modern Atlanta Dance Festival (MAD) was created by Douglas Scott and Full Radius Dance in 1995 to showcase the diversity and excellence of the local dance scene. The MAD Festival strives to present the best of Atlanta’s modern/contemporary dance.
The MAD Festival provides audiences with the highest quality of dance and cultivates new audiences for contemporary dance, particularly those who are attracted by the festival format. The festival allows audiences to experience a variety of choreographers, techniques and artistic visions in a single evening and builds community between the many artists and their audiences.
Over sixty different companies and individual artists have appeared at the MAD Festival. Partners in the presentation of the MAD Festival have included the Marcus Jewish Community Center, Agnes Scott College, Several Dancers Core, and ArtScape (a project of Central Atlanta Progress).
The 2013 Festival presented work by SWADanceCollective, Zoetic Dance Ensemble, Rule of Three Productions, T. Lang Dance, and Full Radius Dance.
