Between 1895 and 1931, Walters collected around 730 codices.  Its permanent collection includes ancient art, medieval art and manuscripts, decorative objects, Asian art and Old Master and 19th-century paintings.

Junious "House" Brickhouse formed Urban Artistry to teach the fresh, innovative dance forms that grew with house music.

South African dancer and choreographer Lesole Maine is at the forefront of Metro DC's burgeoning African immigrant music and dance community.

Salty Dog Blues is the story about Merchant Marines of color and their relationship to the National Maritime Union, a once progressive union that was forced, in 2001, to merge with the Seafarers International Union. In the process, many of the retired mariners lost benefits they worked their entire lives to secure. Examining their development as a multi-racial/international labor force, the film chronicles the lives of these men and women and describes how they navigated issues of racism, disparities in the workplace, as well as gender and familial conflicts. It is an intimate look at the potentially devastating consequences of stagnant pension plans, the eradication of medical benefits, and how the elder mariners are organizing to fight back against these injustices.

GET TICKETS

Red Giant composer Adam Matlock sat down with Tor.com to discuss what it was like to write a Sci-Fi opera for Rhymes With Opera. 

Here's an excerpt from the interview:
"There is something about staged drama that gives room for things to get weird without explanation. I’m not super well-versed in the dramatic canon, but it seems like I’ve come across plenty of plays where things happen that you could only call mystical that audiences just take for granted. The idea of that—working in tandem with an SF backdrop, where suspension of disbelief is a major concern—was interesting to me. What could the dramatic setting and the music do for the story? How could we do the world-building and the personal drama in the words and music without needing to lean on expensive visual cues?"

PANEL DISCUSSION ABOUT WOMEN’S VOICES IN THE THEATRE @ EVERYMAN

A new panel discussion series - The World of the Play

Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart debuted in the early 1980s—the beginning of an era that celebrated the increased role of women in the workplace and a decade where the female voice was heard louder than ever before - not only in theatre, but in politics, business, education and more.

Over 30 years later, there are still surprising gender inequalities in average salaries, education and even the fact that female playwrights are still produced far less than their male counterparts. Why aren't women playwrights being heard on our stages? Join our esteemed panel of professionals as we discuss the role of women in theatre today and how the surprising lack of the feminine voice on stage may be a reflection of society itself.
