The Kennedy Center’s Hall of Nations will be more than just a hall for the month of March, when performance groups from 20 countries, including Iceland, Chile and Iraq, will take to the theater’s stages and beyond for the World Stages festival. Highlights include “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” from the British-South African team behind “War Horse,” and “Savannah Bay,” from France’s Theatre de l’Atelier, starring Academy Award nominee Emmanuelle Riva (“Amour”). From March 28-30, French and Japanese companies will collaborate on several nontraditional performances in public areas around the center.
