Since opening in fall 2015, National Sawdust has become more than a just place to see engaging contemporary music of all stripes. The Williamsburg venue has embraced its role as an educational space, with engaged programming that links the music to broader social issues. This March, National Sawdust launches second annual Spring Revolution Festival, a month-long program of performances and discussions tied to Women's History Month. Its two themes—female empowerment and cultural dialogue—drive the programming, which include sthe premiere of musical-theater piece "Revolution: The Pussy Riot Story," and a collaboration between minimalist composer Philip Glass, kora player Foday Musa Suso and cellist Jeffrey Zeigler. For the full lineup of Spring Revolution events, visit National Sawdust.
