At the crossroads of dance, live music and the visual arts lies Palissimo. This contemporary dance company headed by choreographer/director Pavel Zustiak (recent winner of the juried Bessie Award) is evolving the art of dance into an exciting new form that combines experimental dance and theater with music, lighting, photography, film and audience participation. With this vibrant new performance art, Palissimo's audiences aren't passive observers, but a part of the dialogue. Custodians of Beauty builds on Zustiak's continuing experimentation with theater and movement, while examining the concept of beauty. If you're hungry before the Friday night show, head out to the theater early. DC-area food trucks park in front of the theater starting at 5:00pm on Friday.
