Step Afrika! is the critically acclaimed company celebrated worldwide for its performance of stepping, an exciting dance form combining rhythmic footwork, body percussion, and spirited vocalizing.
Cited by Washingtonian as “a showstopper” and “one of 20 groups in DC well worth a trip to the theater,” each artist in Step Afrika! functions as a one-person band without instruments, creating a veritable wall of sound through the syncopated interplay of hands, feet, and voice. In its biggest production of the year, Step Afrika! will present a range of works featuring ten world-class performers. Step Afrika!'s Home Performance Series features full-length performances, community outreach activities and a special Saturday evening Gala performance. All funds raised help to support the work of Step Afrika! year-round as well as the recently established scholarship fund for college students. For more information, please visit www.stepafrika.org.
Tickets: $29.50 - $39.50
“The Step Afrika! V.I.P. Experience” Tickets: $100
Available for Saturday, June 19 at 8 pm. Price includes pre-performance wine and cheese with the company, reserved VIP performance seating and the post-performance rooftop dessert reception.
Synetic Theater – DC’s Premier Physical Theater Presents: Othello
Family Theater, The Kennedy Center
June 3 – July 3, 2010
Directed by Paata Tsikurishvili and Choreographed by Irina Tsikurishvili (Two of our speakers for Plenary III!)
After thrilling audiences with its spectacular Antony and Cleopatra, Synetic once again infuses one of Shakespeare’s most poignant tragedies with its “art of silence,” exploring a tale of love destroyed by jealousy. When the general Othello triumphantly returns home to the promise of peace and marriage, little can he know that his most trusted advisor is also one of the most fiendish and manipulative villains imaginable. Scandal is fueled, families and friendships are destroyed, as a “trifle light as air” – a handkerchief – undoes them all. The Washington Post calls Synetic “ferocious theatricality” and “an entirely visceral experience.”
