What’s Going On – Preview (Free Art on 8th Event)

September 16, 2016 @ 6:30 pm

| $Free

Performance Preview.

Vincent E. Thomas looks through the lens of Marvin Gaye’s transcendent music and finds a reflection of the world today. Taking inspiration from 1971’s inimitable What’s Going On, Marvin Gaye’s insights into life, love and social justice are given fresh perspectives with new choreography by Vincent E. Thomas, Ralph Glenmore and Sylvia Soumah.

This performance previews excerpts from the full evening-length work featuring Modern, Jazz and West African dance. What’s Going On seeks to provoke thoughtfulness and spark conversations to ignite change in each community it touches.

This event takes place on the Busboys and Poets Brookland Plaza (625 Monroe St NE) a 2 block walk from Brookland-CUA Metro (Red Line).

The rain location for this event will be Edgewood Arts Center, 3415 8th St NE, Washington, DC 20017.
