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.

Night Light
Performed by Tarik O’Meally

Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 7 pm & Friday, April 5, 2019 at 7 pm

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

Night Light is a reflective examination of the current discordant American crisis of identity. Performed in a survival horror setting, Night Light investigates what our innermost monsters represent…discovering how we face and conquer those monsters emboldened by faith that the conflict will improve us. Through visceral athletic movement, this work explores themes of self-preservation, transformation and wholeness to a haunting musical score. This work is about seeing who will get out alive. To survive, however, we must walk down the dark alley. Discover the noise in the basement. Solve the killer’s identity. In the end, Night Light requires performers and audience alike to understand what our perceptions of our internal monsters, villains, or enemies say about our own state of being.

“To confront the enemy without we must first confront the enemy within.” – Bell Hooks
