Something unscripted and unpredictable is happening Inauguration Weekend in DC (Jan. 19-22). Grief? Outrage? Consciousness-raising? An unalterable shift in the space-time continuum? Probably all of the above … and much more. Human improvisers of every ilk bring all their messy thoughts and feelings to the stage for this momentous weekend of creative expression and connection at this pivotal and urgent time in our history.

These shows are presented at DC Arts Center in the heart of Adams Morgan.
