 Thursday April 5 from 7pm to 9pm

Engaging the complexity and richness of the streets of Anacostia, artists Johanna Leech and Matthew Slaats will present Streetplay Anacostia on Thursday April 5th from 7 – 9pm at the Old Evidence Warehouse in Anacostia – 2235 Shannon Pl, SE.

For the project they will be creating a participatory game using the facade of the Warehouse and projected historical images of the neighborhood to consider the past and present of the city.  The audience will be invited to play the game and keep their score with the winner being conferred the title of “Anacostia Champion”.  Interaction with participants will create discussions, lead to story telling, and even the possibility of playing other street games. The night will culminate with a chalk drawing of an image being drawing out on the surface of the building.

Come out and play tomorrow night!
