Early Evening - Outdoor Performance by the Tidal Basin
"changeling tree: the forest lies about you"
Presented by DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities
6:00pm - 6:45pm
The performance takes place in the Paddle Boat parking lot at Maine Ave. & 15th St. NW.
"changeling tree: the forest lies about you is a continuation of brown's ever-evolving narrative and a direct nod to Japanese Noh theater; which is by tradition tied to nature. As a finale to the National Cherry Blossom Festival, a choreographed procession of two of brown's mythic characters, embodied by dancers Monstah Black and Beasty, will take place just before dusk along the Tidal basin. It is amongst the blossoms, where the heroic myth will come to a ceremonial close in Washington."
