Friday February 15 * 7-10pm * $5 suggested

Rhizome DC presents a month-long exhibition and performance series devoted to exploring the potentialities and limitations inherent in the theme “Sound Heals All Wounds”. Throughout the month we will present artworks, performances, and discussions dealing with topics like: performance as it is constrained by health challenges; the political power of sound as it relates to feminism, refugee experiences, and social hierarchies; sound as a means of coping with loss; listening as meditative practice; and more.

At the opening on Friday February 15, explore the installations, participate in a Sound Meditation, and enjoy improvised music and dance from DC’s Creative Music Workshop Players. 7-10pm

Sound Installations by:
Abby Wendle / Daniel O’Connor & Unthings / Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste / Rebecca Mahay
