Manoj Kesavan and a dedicated band of artists and volunteers got the BOOM ball rolling three years ago. Where it stops, nobody knows.
When BOOM, an annual three-day festival of avant-garde and grassroots performances, first detonated in Plaza Midwood in 2016, its eclectic mix of dance, music and theater succeeded beyond anyone’s dreams.
