Announcing Season 16

Tackling pressing issues of this American moment with stories that drive us to action.

The Trans-Atlantic Time Traveling Company

July 26 - July 29

by Holly Bass

In collaboration with The Anacostia Playhouse

Three freedwomen travel through the American south in the 1860s with a medicine show, but unlike other snake oil salesmen of the day, these mysterious women give away their healing potions in an attempt to cure a dangerous disease that threatens to destroy future generations. A devised work of dance theater, The Trans-Atlantic Time Traveling Company combines vaudeville, sampling culture and time travel to engage the audience in a conversation about what it means to be free and ways we can move towards an equitable and just society.
