(Nov. 3-12) We Fight We Die
A modern day chorus guides audiences through We Fight We Die at Flashpoint in Northwest Washington. The play follows Q, a homeless graffiti art virtuoso who has transfixed a city with stunning and subversive works. When caught, Q is forced to license his talents to the government, which causes a moral crisis of sorts through November 12.

(Nov. 2) Julie Mehretu and you
Ethiopian-born, Michigan-raised artist Julie Mehretu is known for her large-scale abstractions. Her paintings typically feature colorful geometric forms densely layered over each other, creating a world of associations while remaining non-specific. The MacArthur Genius Award-winner gives a lecture tonight at the American Art Museum. You can catch it from your couch if so inclined.

(Nov. 2) The Avanti Orchestra takes on two greats
If you want to catch an ace pianist and a crack orchestra take on Beethoven and Tchaikovsky tonight you’re going to need to actually go to The Kennedy Center. Washington’s own Avanti Orchestra is joined by South Korean classical pianist Yoonie Han for Ludwig Van’s 4th and Pyotr Ilich’s 5th.

Music: “Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 in F Minor - Finale Allegro con fuoco” by Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
