Future Performance Pieces

Posted on: December 15th, 2011 by

The Performing Knowledge Project currently has three performances pieces in development:


Mother’s Work

With MotherStory, scheduled to open this summer, The Performing Knowledge Project explores exciting new territory:
  • a collective community creation that brings together over 35 artists from across the DC region in an aesthetic celebration of the mother.
  • additionally, community members will be engaged in the creation of the performance, adding not only their presence to the celebration but their memories, images, and voices.

Song of Myself: the Whitman Project

Walt Whitman, 1854

With Song of Myself: the Whitman Project, The Performing Knowledge Project continues its celebration of 19th century American poets.

Following on the heals of its highly successful Embodying Poe: Poetry in Performance, the Project now tackles the master song of American literature, fusing music, film, photography, graphics, and voice.

Song of Myself is scheduled to open in winter 2013.
