The Happenstance quintet delves into Ancient Greek Mythology with guest artist Craig Jaster generating a live musical score. In a pared-down 1940’s aesthetic a chorus of workers assembles lightning bolts and mines the Underworld. Like Sisyphus they must endlessly repeat their tasks. With an ample smattering of amusement, the performers invoke the Muses, offer Sacrifice, suffer Hubris, consult Oracles, and meet Fate as they portray an array of mortals and Gods whose flaws reflect their own.

Tickets: $23 and $17 students/seniors/military. Click here.

Clown Cabaret – We’re Back!

Wednesday, April 17th at 8 pm

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

Clown Cabaret produces a potpourri of amazing comedy talent, including veterans of Big Apple Circus, Ringling Bros., Cirque du Soleil (and more), and graduates of LeCoq, Gaulier, and Dell’Arte schools (and more).

Come see a variety of … variety performers who are stretching to create better, stronger, funnier acts. We know how it works on paper and in the studio; the next step is getting it on stage! Come join us and be a part of the process!

Clowns are terribly misunderstood these days. Our goal is to change that. With highly skilled, well-trained performers, Clown Cabaret will not only expand the audience’s understanding, but give them the opportunity to laugh, cry, and, maybe, throw a pie in someone’s face.

Clown Cabaret was founded in 2010 by DC performers Karen Beriss, Matthew Pauli and Rich Potter in order to give clowns an opportunity to try new material in a supportive and fun venue with a great audience. Variety performers showcase new material and explore new facets of established material and, most importantly, play.

Tickets: Adults: $25, Children (16 & under): $15, Students/Seniors/Veterans: $20. Click here.
