Here & Now

Tonight (5/17), tighten your grip on gravitational forces with grace and humor at the drop-in Juggle Jam from 6-7 p.m. at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop. This all-levels workshop includes demonstrations, hands-on practice and a collaborative performance. Cost is a $5 minimum donation to CHAW’s tuition assistance fund. Feel free to RSVP at the Facebook event page.

The DC Weirdo Show scheduled for tonight (5/17) has been cancelled, but you can look forward to next month’s show, The Future is Genderful, on June 21st at 9 p.m. at the Dew Drop Inn DC.

On Sunday (5/19), savor your morning omelet with a side of sultry burlesque and saucy comedy at Yolks on You: A Comedic Burlesque and Variety Brunch Party, happening at The Bier Baron Tavern and Comedy Loft. Doors open at noon for the 1 p.m. show. Get tickets at this link.

Contribute to UpSpring Aerial Lab’s next show When We Were: Aerial Stories of People and Places by submitting a photo of a person or place that has impacted your life to by next Saturday (5/25). The photos will form a tapestry of memories and aerial interpretations presented as part of their show on June 2nd at 4 p.m. at Joe’s Movement Emporium (you may also bring a printed photo on show day). Submitting a photo implies that UpSpring has your permission to display the photo during the show.

Sunset & Chill had bad luck with the rain last Saturday, but they’re on track for good vibes (and hopefully clear skies) on Saturday, May 25th. This combination fire jam, dance party and neighborhood gathering continues to elevate DC’s capacity for fun and fierce hangouts. See the DJ lineup, food vendors and rules for fire spinners at their Facebook event page.

  • The Fairfax Jugglers will meet on Thursday (5/23) from 7:30-10 p.m. in the Key Middle School Cafeteria.
  • The next juggling class at TSNY-DC will be Sunday (5/26) at 1:30 p.m. at TSNY-DC, and you can also sign up for their open juggling sessions on Fridays from 6-7 p.m. by registering on their website.
