Sunset & Chill @ Catharsis on the Mall

November 9th @ 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.

Check out the hottest (literally and figuratively) regular fire jam in DC, this time in the heart of the nation’s capital! Performing on the opening night of ‘Catharsis — A Vigil for Healing,’ Sunset & Chill offers local fire spinners the opportunity to jam to local DJs while getting their flame on.

The jam will take place at ‘Love Wins’ stage on the north side of the Washington Monument. If you use the entrance just north of the monument walkway, turn left to find the stage.

Fire spinners MUST sign up in advance for this event, and pay particular attention to the rules and regulations of spinning fire on the mall to ensure that this can happen again in the future. To register for the limited number of fire spinning spots, fill out this form. Fire breathing or spinning with long props like jump ropes or whips is strictly prohibited. And unlike Sunset & Chill at the Olde City Farm & Garden, alcohol is not permitted at any Catharsis events.

Air Play

April 22nd @ 4 p.m.

At this show, recommended for ages five and above, you’ll stare at the ceiling. A lot. But for all the right reasons.

Air Play dazzles with its aerial concoctions of confetti, fabric, umbrellas and more. This circus-style adventure tells the story of two siblings journeying through a surreal land of air, transforming the ordinary into objects of uncommon beauty.

This show is the brainchild of the Acrobuffos, a comedic duo from New York City comprised of Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone.
