We ABSOLUTLEY enjoyed this event. Why didn't we know about this in previous years (we found out this is their 5th season? This event is: well organized, well practiced/timed/performed, colorful, energetic, professional, and enjoyable. If we could get tickets (they are sold out) we would go again. We will be back next year and support them too.

It's on H Street NE, and the new trolley tracks run in front. There is street parking and it seems safe enough.

Description

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.
