May 24-25: Shen Wei Dance Arts
Tonight and tomorrow you can see Shen Wei Dance Arts perform Undivided Divided at The Kennedy Center. Western dance and Chinese aesthetic come together in this site-specific piece, which incorporates video, sculpture and body-paint. Audience members are invited to move around during the 45-minute performance, and check out the various performers and installations. Oh, and just a head’s up that the show does include nudity.

May 25: Indian Classical Music Concert

The concert will be held at 1700 Myrtle Road in Silver Spring, and you can RSVP by phone at (240) 460-3799.
