Celebrate WORLD TOILET DAY!--with COMEDY! Come for drinks, snacks, games & prizes! And learn about toilets--something we often take for granted. At 5 pm, a special comedy performance of "How the Potty Trained Us" by Shawn Shafner of The Poop Project. Shafner will expose how current sanitary practices threaten our health, environment, and 40% of the world still living without safe toilets - and invite us to get our sh*t together before it hits the fan. From communal Roman toilets to the Queen who banished the bowel movement, Shawn "The Puru" Shafner unearths the origins of our dis-ease through stand-up comedy / lecture / character-shifting solo play. So take the plunge, join a revolution pushing for change from the bottom up, and proudly declare, “I’m a pooper!” Free ~ REGISTER HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/world-toilet-day-2019-how-the-potty-trained-us-registration-81372486297
Another good cast should bode well for this production of the Tony-winning The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. UPDATE Monday afternoon 11/18: Some PWYC tickets were available on Today Tix but that no longer seems to be the case. This was link: www.todaytix.com/x/washington-dc/shows/18744-the-curious-incident-of-the-dog-in-the-night-time Remaining tickets should be available in person at 6:00 pm Wednesday at the box office. Murder. Mystery. Mayhem. Math. What begins as an investigation into the grisly death of a neighbor’s dog results in a remarkable coming-of-age journey for 15-year-old Christopher Boone. A self-described “mathematician with some behavioral problems,” our narrator sees things differently than those around him and, like fractals in a kaleidoscope, each revelation exposes another puzzle for him to solve. As the audience follows Christopher’s brilliant yet dizzying mind, the full story unravels in a visually dazzling sequence of events onstage. Simon Stephen’s beloved Tony and Olivier Award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon’s bestselling novel challenges us to seek out the silver linings in ourselves—and others—as we make our way through the world.
Mexican Cultural Institute
The Mexican Cultural Institute, in partnership with MODO, Museo del Objeto del Objeto (the Purpose of the Object Museum), is proud to announce its newest exhibit: Mexicalidad: diseño nuevas generaciones, opening on Wednesday, November 20 at 6:45 pm at the Institute. YOU MUST RSVP WITH the MCI HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/inauguration-mexicalidad-tickets-81753716567?aff=eemailordconf&utm_campaign=order_confirm&utm_medium=email&ref=eemailordconf&utm_source=eventbrite&utm_term=viewevent About the exhibit Mexicalidad makes a review of the work, the thought and the creative process that accompanies a young generation of designers in Mexico. The project stems from the conviction of the social and cultural impact that occurs when one remembers that Mexico is also art, culture, creativity and innovation. It contains a selection of 164 pieces and projects that show what designs are currently being produced in Mexico. An important section of the exhibition presents a series of projects that address specific problems and integrate an awareness of the social or environmental impact in their production processes. The selection was realized through a curatorial council led by curator Graciela Kasep and made up of professionals from the field: Cynthia Gómez, Omar Cruz and Ricardo Lozano. In addition, it is important to note that the museography, created by Giacomo Castagnola, provides a novel way of perceiving and displaying objects, inspired by the wirework used in many traveling markets in Mexico and manufactured for the exhibition by artisan Jesús Aguilar Pérez.
Posting this for my friend Ting. Anything she is running will be first-class, sensible and elegant. The evening costs $20+fees on Eventbrite and will include an interactive presentation, Q&A discussion, light refreshments, mingling, and giveaways. Here is the link for tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/live-fashionably-ladies-edition-tickets-78693695963?aff=ebdssbdestsearch From Ting: Hello Ladies, What does "Fashion" mean to you? I think most of us have had a complicated relationship with it. And some of us might feel that it is out of reach. But I am here to bring it closer to your everyday life. As a Fashion Consultant with a diverse client base in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, body shape, and socioeconomic backgrounds, I have witnessed how "Fashion", when done right, can help change lives. This inaugural event is designed specifically for the ladies, to break down common myths, expand the definition of "Fashion", offer real-life tips, and encourage all to "live fashionably". Our evening will feature an interactive presentation, Q&A discussion, light refreshments, mingling, and giveaways. Looking forward to meet you all! Ting The Ting Times www.thetingtimes.com [masked]
