July 1-Aug. 3: Coast to Coast

Lines define borders, but what lies in the spaces between those boundaries? A photographic projection explores that question and investigates what happens by, in and on coastal barriers. Coast to Coast presents a variety of perspectives on physical boundaries and attempts to “show that, on our most fundamental levels, we all exist in the same way.” D.C.-based photography publisher Empty Stretch selected the 400-some-odd photos, which you can view through August 3 on Artisphere’s Town Hall Video Wall and Video Screens.

July 1: Pilobolus

The acrobatic dance troupe Pilobolus is swinging through the Filene Center at Wolf Trap tonight for a one-night-only performance. The American modern dance company is known for blending art with athleticism in its playful approach to movement. Its members often work together in pairs and groups to move as a single body, building on one another to create an alternate reality.
