Apr. 17-27: Jarman (all this maddening beauty)
British filmmaker, artist and AIDS activist Derek Jarman died 20 years ago, but force/collision, a D.C.-based experimental performance ensemble, is keeping his memory alive with Jarman (all this maddening beauty), a show featuring both live performance and film projections. Directed and performed by John Moletress, this work by Caridad Svich premieres at Atlas Performing Arts Center in Northeast tonight at 8 with a pay-what-you-can preview. You can check it out through April 27.
