This arts festival is literally touchy-feely: It offers more than 100 ways to “connect with like-minded spirits,” according to its website. Events range from ballroom-dance parties to—shudder—group cuddles ($30 for a one-night pass). Why get so close to strangers? Founder Christian Rodriguez explains.
So what’s Interfusion about?
Our values are based on universal love. Nonjudgment is a very large part. It’s not just a bunch of workshops—it’s the energy. It’s this sort of buffet of different things to try, all framed in a collective experience.
That sounds . . . kinda intimate.
It makes you connect with people in a deeper, authentic way. Are [attendees] going to feel comfortable cuddling with strangers? It’s up to them. Ultimately, the goal is for them to remove their inhibitions and find their self-expression.
How would you convince DC’s more buttoned-up residents to jump in?
I don’t know, actually. That’s my challenge right now.
