L’Impérial Kikiristan (Free Art on 8th Event)
September 9, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pmFree
Brass Band and Satire from France.
Between merengue and Turkish delight, Persian cha cha cha and swing from the Eurasian Steppe, the borders of the Schengen area explode when they are in touch with the most popular brass band from one of its least known (and possibly imaginary) countries: Kikiristan.
Its traditions, like a constantly renewed audio travel diary, comes from improbable journeys: from Central Asia to North Africa, across cabarets of Oran, a hair salon in Tel Aviv and poultry Kazakh markets; from Bollywood to Broadway, from the Silk Road to Highway 66, Impérial Kikiristan has performed more than1000 times in 8 years, on stage or in the street, in more than 30 countries, which, in this case, really are on the map.
This event takes place at the 8th St Arts Park, 3225 8th St NE.
The rain location for this event will be Edgewood Arts Center, 3415 8th St NE, Washington, DC 20017.
