Halcyon Stage Pop-Up @ Union Market: Explosive Ballet & Beirut

12:00PM | FREE | Union Market, 1309 5th St NE, Washington, DC 20002
Event Description

12PM – 2PM 

Join us at Union Market for an explosion of creativity in unexpected settings as Philly-based BalletX—one of America’s most interesting dance companies—performs a series of short pop-up dance performances set to the celebrated indie-rock band Beirut, throughout the Union Market campus over a two-hour period. Meet in front of Union Market at noon to receive your map and marching orders, and begin a scavenger hunt-like musical experience.

Since its inception in 2005, BalletX has presented 59 world premieres by over 30 diverse choreographers from around the world, prompting The New York Times to write that Christine Cox, the co-founder, artistic and executive director of BalletX, “has good grounds for pride.”

Halcyon Stage Pop-Up @ Union Market is a series of free pop-up concerts designed to allow audiences to find beauty in unexpected places, infusing Union Market and its surroundings with an artistic spirit and filling it with a sense of community.
