About "Silhouettes":

Dana Tai Soon Burgess, the Smithsonian's first ever Choreographer-in-Residence, and his company will respond to the amazing “Black Out” exhibition in a poignant modern dance work with video by designer Kelly Colburn on Saturday, October 27th and Monday, October 30th at the National Portrait Gallery, McEvoy Auditorium, 6:30pm.

“Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now,” an exhibition that explores the relatively unstudied art form of silhouettes—cut paper profiles—which were a hugely popular and democratic form of portraiture in the 19th century.

RSVP required. Contact us with questions.

All RSVP/giving levels are a tax-deductible donation to Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company, a 501c3 nonprofit arts organization.
