The D.C. performing arts scene is brimming with excitement and creativity, with musicians and dancers exploring classic styles and emerging expressions that span a huge range of cultures and communities. The D.C. business scene is also vital and innovative, with local restaurants, boutiques, and other businesses immersing themselves in the community in intriguing ways. A new online extension of our Mars Arts D.C. community engagement program, Mars Arts DC: Virtual showcases the meeting of arts and business in D.C., in original, high-quality video productions. Our two inaugural, fall 2020 Mars Arts DC: Virtual series are:

  • Rhythm & Motion: Four original films, each spotlighting a particular D.C.-based or -raised artist in a combination documentary and performance/masterclass format.
  • Dance in D.C.: In each of six original films, shot by award-winning D.C.-based director Francisco Campos-Lopez, a local dancer performs onsite at a local business, and the artists and proprietors discuss their mutual connections and the D.C. community.
