September 8th @ 8 p.m.
Come check out photos by Dani Pierce Steuber and a musical set by Dr. Dour & Peach at indie artspace, the GallAerie.
As a founding member of Street Light Circus, Dani has been photographing the local circus scene for the last three years. Come see her collaborations with local circus artists that seek to build and promote a thriving circus scene in Washington, D.C. Circus is a way to harness not just the skill and talent of a community, but the unique character that makes someplace feel like ‘home.
The musical guest for the evening will be Dr. Dour & Peach. (Dr. Dour sings about monsters. Peach helps.)

The GallAerie is an independent DIY art gallery/performance space in Mt. Pleasant. If you’ve never come to one of their events before, DM them through Facebook for the address.

How can circus performance redefine a space and explore the borders drawn between one neighborhood and another, between artist and viewer, between humans and buildings? See a collection of local artists grappling with the notion of borders and barriers at Performing the Border’s Opening Reception, presented by the Alper Initiative for Washington Art. The reception is free and open to the public, and will feature live aerial, juggling and handstand performances by Street Light Circus throughout the exhibit.
