“The role of art is changing right now. We need to heal, retell stories, focus. There’s something deeply calming about a gathering of people in a live space.”
- Itamar Kubovy

Hartford Courant, July 2018


The Festival will include a fantastic line-up of artists, authors, musicians, chefs, writers, and speakers scheduled throughout the three weekends. Events begin at dawn and will run until late night. Sunrise meditations, field exercises, yoga, community dinners, DJ dancing, evening speakeasies, and local wines and foods are just a few of the things attendees have to look forward to. Also, incredible performances by celebrated and award-winning musicians and singers are lined-up for each of the festival’s weekends.

Washington is the center of gravity for Pilobolus

Employing their collective decision process and extraordinary talent pool, this summer, Pilobolus brought the Five Senses Festival to its creative and original wellspring, Washington, Connecticut.

Explore Washington CT, October 2018


The Pilobolus Five Senses Festival was begun to answer the growing need for sensory and community connection during these fragmented, frenetic times. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to participate and engage in an intimate and informal setting with artists, speakers, writers, musicians, foodies, performers, scientists and more as they come together to create, inspire, eat and drink in the middle of the woods.

Stephanie Ingrassia & Itamar Kubovy are two of the motivating forces behind the Five Senses Festival held this summer in Washington. A multi-arts and ideas festival held on a field in the woods, the seven-day festival featured world-class performances, interactive art and classes, and delicious local food. We spoke with Itamar Kubovy, the executive producer of Pilobolus, and Stephanie Ingrassia, vice chair of the Brooklyn Museum and, along with her husband Tim, long-time supporters of Pilobolus and owners of the festival property.

What's a festival produced by a company known for its inventive stage shows without some inventive stage shows? There will be sporadic and surprise performances at every turn, and the festival will conclude with Come to your senses, Pilobolus's new evening-length program of premiere works and audience favorites.
