Step Afrika!, the first professional company devoted to stepping, presents their holiday show at Washington D.C.'s Atlas Performing Arts Center. Come make music with Step Afrika!, DJ Frosty the Snowman and their furry friends from the animal kingdom in this special seasonal performance. Equally inspired by African and modern dance, stepping combines kicks, stomps, claps and chants into an overwhelming, high-energy experience of movement and sound. The Washington company has achieved worldwide renown for their mastery of the art and their electrifying live shows, and their festive celebration of the season promises to be no exception.

rbGb reunites seven artists from the acclaimed work, the break/s: a mixtape for stage - writer/performer Marc Bamuthi Joseph; director Michael John Garcés; choreographer Stacey Printz; drummer/beatboxer Tommy Shepherd; documentary filmmaker Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi; lighting designer James Clotfelter; and media designer David Szlasa. Joseph is joined onstage in the performance by Shepherd, dancer/actor Traci Tolmaire, and vocalist/visual artist Theaster Gates, who is also designing the set. Also returning to the team of collaborators is costume designer, Mai-Lei Pecorari, who previously worked with Joseph on Scourge.
Set into Gates' malleable stage installation of repurposed building materials and clay objects, and heightened by Jacobs-Fantauzzi's vivid films and vibrant graffiti murals from Life is Living, the poetry and performance in rbGb puts forward the idea that valuing your own life, and the life of your community, is the first step to valuing planet Earth.
