Apr. 5-6: An Evening of Dance & Music
Bowen McCauley Dance presents An Evening of Dance & Music tonight and tomorrow at The Kennedy Center. Artistic Director Lucy Bowen McCauley says her contemporary dance company is committed to incorporating live music into its performances. McCauley's take on Le Sacre du Printemps will be accompanied by four-hand piano rather than the original full orchestra. The company will premiere Fire and Air, a new work featuring a rare appearance by McCauley herself. "Fire and Air is based on Act V of Antony and Cleopatra and it's a very dramatic piece. The world premiere of the music was written by Patrick Soluri for this piece, and it's got pre-recorded music as well as strings in the orchestra pit." The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Apr. 5: Vision
You can head to Montgomery College's Cultural Arts Center today at noon and 8 p.m. for two performances of Vision by French multi-platform artist Pierre Megos. The theatrical event explores the magical world of cinema as it is created in real-time via a green-screen.

Music: Farandoulo de Chatouno (Farandole Des Jeunes Filles) by Gaetano Di Bacco and Marguerita Oundjian Smith
