Take It to the Bridge, Week 9: Occupy
In each of the last nine weeks you could say that artists have occupied the Corcoran. Well, at least they've occupied the bridge over its entryway. With that in mind, for the final installment of "Take It to the Bridge," dancer Maida Withers aims to perform a work inspired by the Occupy movement. For her five-hour stream-of-consciousness performance, scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, she is teaming up with electronic musician Steve Hilmy. In addition to dance and choreography, Withers will incorporate text and direct verbal conversation with the audience. Human megaphone, anyone?
