Jul. 17-27: The T Party
A new play written and directed by Natsu Onoda Power opens tomorrow at Round House Theatre in Silver Spring. Presented by Forum Theatre, The T Partyspelled with just a capital “T,” and not an “e” “a” like the beverage or political movement—was inspired by real stories about gender transformation and the experiences of transgender people living in the D.C. area. The multi-media performance starts when audience members are split up into various parties. In the second half, revelers reunite to watch the cast act out scenes such as a utopian sex-ed class. You can see the show through July 27.

Jul. 17-28: rainbone harvest
Alexander D’Agostino performs rainbone harvest at VisArts at Rockville tomorrow night at 6. During the free performance, the artist will conduct a ritual that uses dance and magic to provide what he says is “a much needed catharsis from the struggles of being human.” The remnants of the event will remain in the Gibbs Street Gallery through July 28 as a visual exhibit.
