(January 29) PRESIDENT IN PROGRESS Docs In Progress screens a documentary-in-the-making at George Washington University tomorrow night at 7. Showcasing a president-in-the-making, the film Yes We Did: the People's Inauguration is currently in rough-draft form. It takes a look back at Barack Obama's inauguration through the eyes of a few of the 1.8 million Americans who attended. The screening allows filmmakers and aficionados to connect during an audience feedback session. The event also includes the 10-minute documentary, "Before the Show," about making it big in DC's professional dance scene.

(January 29 & 30) MOON WATER That dance scene includes performers from around the world, like Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan appearing at DC's Kennedy Center tomorrow and Saturday. The contemporary troupe performs Moon Water, a meditative and magical bit of choreography.

(January 28-February 28) TONY & CLEO Epic lovers reunite during Synetic Theater's Antony and Cleopatra, opening tonight at the Lansburgh Theatre in downtown DC and running through February 28th. In this production, the Bard's great tragedy is performed without words, as dancers act out its story of love, loss and empire with movement alone.
