(Nov. 4-5) AN EVENING OF ANNA SOKOLOW http://www.dakshina.org/2010/07/20/an-evening-of-anna-sokolow/ The distinct dance of Anna Sokolow is presented tonight and tomorrow at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park. The District’s Daniel Singh Dance Company performs several of the seminal choreographer’s stark dances, including the company premiere of Sokolow’s Frida - Which drew on her personal friendship with Frida Kahlo.

(Nov. 4) ART, LIBATIONS, It’s the first Thursday of the month, which among other things means The Phillips Collection presents another chance to imbibe art alongside libations and live music in Northwest Washington. November’s Phillips After 5 brings a panoramic view of the past, present, and future of photography. Lectures, contests, and displays await in celebration of Fotoweek DC 2010.

(Nov. 5-14) HOLIDAY Phillip Barry’s Holiday is a comedy about a bygone era in which unabashed greed leads to years of financial doldrums. While certain themes may strike close to home, there’s also a love story to buoy the whole affair. Holiday is staged at Tyson’s Corner 1st Stage tomorrow through November 14.
