(July 11-Aug. 11) DC Emerging

Fresh talent from the District explores life in the metro area in DC Emerging: New Urban and Domestic Interpretations. Paintings, drawings and ceramics are on display at VisArts in Rockville through mid-August.

(July 11-24) Fringe benefits

If you didn’t have a chance to catch any emerging talent at the Capital Fringe Festival over the weekend, there are still plenty of productions in Northwest Washington through the end of next week:

But Love is My Middle Name is a one-woman musical comedy about one woman’s search for love and what she ended up settling on when she didn’t find any.

Belle Parricide covers a lot of ground, including murder, incest, greed and morality. Five female playwrights examine the trials and tribulations of 16th century Italian noblewoman Beatrice Cenci.

For a production that’s guaranteed to glow there’s Illuminate: A Martial Arts Experience. The region’s most enthusiastic black belts perform advanced fight choreography with a live score and lots of glow sticks.

Music: “Kung Fu Fighting (Instrumental)” by Cee Lo Green
