National Building Museum

Opportunity to Perform with Creative in Residence

Sunday, January 13, 2019
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Be part of the 2019 Creative in Residence program!

The Opportunity to Perform will take place regardless of weather conditions. Please plan accordingly, noting road closures and Metro changes and leaving enough time to get to the Museum. We will begin promptly at 1:00 pm.

Meet Heather and try out for a unique opportunity to be part of a community of co-creators and performers who will work with Heather to develop and present a new piece inspired by the Museum’s historic building. Heather is looking for people age 18 and up who are excited to collaborate, willing to experiment with movement, and open to new ideas. No dance skill level or experience is required, but participants should be able to move freely and easily.

Participants will be selected on this day for one of two groups, each with different requirements. All rehearsals and performances take place at the Museum.

Performers selected for the chorus must be able to attend 4 days of rehearsal on evenings and weekend days plus both performances:
