It's Steaming

Free Outdoor Theatre Production of 'The Tempest'

June 2, 2016

 

The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade (FGC), a Washington, DC based theatre company, is bringing back free outdoor theatre to Georgetown for its fourth year. This summer, they will be mounting a production of William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” with performances running for three weekends on June 9,10,11,16,17,18, 23, and 24, 2016. Performances will be held nightly at 8:00 pm at Grace Episcopal Church at 1041 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. 

 

Audience members will be able to lay out blankets, pack a picnic and enjoy a free performance out under the stars. In case of inclement weather the show will be performed indoors in the church Sanctuary. Doors will open at 7:00 pm for picnicking and relaxing pre-performance. Some concessions and fun FGC swag will be available for sale on site.

 

FGC is the resident theater company of the Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown and a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non‐profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Outdoor Summer Shakespeare must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” and are tax‐deductible to the extent permitted by law. Donations are accepted here.

Thirteen contemporary sculptures and public artworks will be on view in the Foggy Bottom Historic District for the 2016 Arts in Foggy Bottom Outdoor Sculpture Biennial. 

 

The exhibition, presented by the award-winning Arts in Foggy Bottom, one of Washington’s leading public art programs, runs from Saturday, May 14 through Saturday, October 22.

 

Curator Danielle O’Steen selected local, regional and international artists whose works will be installed on site in front of private homes throughout the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. This year’s show, Turf and Terrain, will be rooted in the sites and stories of Foggy Bottom, while taking on an expanded notion of medium and sculpture. Artists will engage the legacy of historic Foggy Bottom ranging from the figural, the abstract, and even the fantastical; to interactive, performative, and new media works.
